KANSAS: Boy Suspended Over Purse

A 13 year-old Kansas boy has been suspended by his 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.
So far school officials have refused to respond to press inquiries.
