GARNETT, KS (KTVI) – A 13-year-old Kansas 8th grader says he was suspended from school for carrying a purse.
Skylar Davis says the Vera Bradley purse is his form of expression. He adds that girls carry purses, so he should be able to do the same. Skylar’s vice-principal disagreed and told him to stop carrying the bag.
When Skylar refused, he was suspended. His mother questions the suspension because she found no mention of bags or purses in the school handbook. She also questions the timing since Skylar has been carrying the bag since August.
The school has not commented on the suspension.
