Student Booted From Class Because He Was Wearing High Heels

A student was sent to the Principal’s office because he was wearing a pair of high heels.

Kristin Wright from My Fox Tampa Bay has the story:

A teacher called the Principal’s office. That teacher said the boy’s shoes were disrupting the classroom. Principal Bob Heilmann says there was name calling. He asked the student to take off the heels.

“As a principal of a high school, I have to take the paternal side and make sure he’s going to be okay,” said Heilmann, afraid the boy would be bullied. “Anytime anyone goes out from, quote, ‘the norm’ or anytime anyone wants to make a statement, you have to be willing to take what comes with it.”

Riverview students we talked to believe most at the school are accepting of students expressing themselves however they want, and don’t care who wears high heels — even if they don’t like it.
