This is one of the most ridiculous stories I’ve ever read.
An Army Lieutenant Colonel in Michigan wasn’t allowed into his daughter’s high school because the uniform he was wearing “may offend other students”
Lieutenant Colonel Sherwood Baker, a 24 year veteran of the US Army,was turned away from Rochester Adams High School when he went to discuss his daughter’s class schedule. He was told he would have to go home and change his clothes before he was allowed in the building.
Rochester superintendent Robert Shaner, who is also a veteran, has apologized to the family. He said, “The district has apologized for any perception that individuals in uniform are not welcome in the school.The district does not have a policy excluding individuals in uniform and will be working with administration and the firm that handles our security to make sure district policies are understood and communicated accurately.”
The Baker family does have a meeting scheduled with the principal of Adams high school in the near future.
