Can a teacher make you turn your bracelet inside out?
The issue of whether a teacher can make a student turn his or her bracelet inside out has created quite a bit of debate during the past year. One trendy bracelet which happens to raise money as well as awareness about breast cancer is the ‘I (heart) boobies’ bracelet. Schools across the country have banned this bracelet, which have resulted in school suspensions as well as lawsuits filed against the school.
