Yesterday my son came home and said that he could not attend the assembly at Austin Elementary because he didn't have the right kind of shirt on. Only kids that had a college shirt on could attend. I had enough money in my purse to buy groceries until pay day and could not go out and buy new clothes for my kids. So you are trying to encourage kids to go to college and your message is that you can only go if you have the right kind of clothes? Who was in charge of this event? Who gave permission to hand pick who could attend? I talked to my son about it, but I hope that in the future whoever is in charge gives a little more consideration to the kids feelings. I don't think an adult would understand being left out because they weren't dressed like everyone else, much less an elementary little boy.
