Student Told to Change Abstinence T-Shirt Because it Violated School’s Dress Code

A school in Florida asked an 8th-grader to change her t-shirt carrying a message of sexual abstinence that she received at a

Summer Schreiner of Cocoa, Florida attended the Silver Ring Thing Conference, a Christian event that promotes abstinence only.  At the conference, she obtained a t-shirt that read:

“Don’t drink and park… accidents cause kids”

Summer believed in what the shirt said and was proud to wear it to school the next day.  Everything was going well for her at Clearlake Middle School until just after lunch.  On her way back to class, the 8th grader was stopped by the vice principal who told her to go to the office and change her shirt because it was inappropriate.  She was given a t-shirt that read:

“Tomorrow I will dress for success.”

Summer tried to explain that the shirt is not offensive, but that it promotes abstinence, but her words fell on deaf ears.  She felt angry and humiliated the rest of the day.  When she got home she told her mom, Angela Hogan, who said her daughter had dressed for success.  Angela contacted the school and asked them to change their decision or apologize for wrongfully humiliating her daughter.
