A high school honor student with a 4.4 GPA has been suspended over an alleged dress code violation, preventing her from participating in senior class activities and walking at graduation. Her classmates and the internet are rallying to support her, because the allegedly inappropriate shirt she was wearing looks totally normal. The girl, identified only as “Summer,” goes to Hickory Ridge High School in Harrisburg, North Carolina. She told a local news station that she’s had issues with the school’s principal before, consistently enough that her mom asked the school to call her whenever Summer is in trouble. On this occasion, Summer was in the cafeteria, wearing a green shirt that partially bared her shoulders, and principal Michelle Cline ordered her to the school’s control room to change. Summer refused, saying her shirt was fine. She borrowed a jacket from a friend and zipped it up, just to make sure there could be no question she was in compliance with the dress code. That apparently wasn’t good enough for the principal, who Summer says cornered her at an assembly later that day, with the school resource officer to back her up. The principal threatened arrest but that didn’t happen. Summer was suspended for ten days and barred from walking at graduation.
