Weird School Bans

Weird School Bans

This is a list of some weird school bans that might surprise you. Schools have a responsibility to protect their students through bans. However, many bans are just plain weird in the school system.

The most recent bizarre school ban is occurred at Baltic High School in South Dakota, and the culprit is a bracelet meant to raise breast cancer awareness that says “I [heart] Boobies.” While many parents are fine with the cheeky campaign for a good cause, principals at schools other than just Baltic High have deemed them inappropriate for class.

When Missouri’s Smith Cotton High School band designed these “evolution of brass” T-shirts, they had no idea they would cause such a stir. Several parents demanded the shirts, which seem to support Darwinism, be banned because of their religious beliefs. The school complied and bought all the shirts from students for $700 to keep them out of schools.

An elementary school in Scotland banned Father’s Day cards out of respect for children without fathers. However, Mother’s Day celebrations are A-OK. In fact, children are allowed to bring their mothers to school near the special day.

Shocking news from the UK: children were looking up inappropriate words in the dictionary. So now if kids look at the “wrong” parts of an anatomy book, should we remove those from the library as well? This is red alert for the school system!
