A 13-year-old boy in Kansas says he was suspended from school for refusing to remove his Vera Bradley bag.
Skylar Davis has been attending school for over two months while wearing his colorful, flowered, Vera Bradley shoulder bag. His mother is now trying to figure out why, on Wednesday, he was suspended from school and told he cannot return until he stops wearing the purse.
She can’t find anything in the school handbook about bags or purses. He says, “It expresses myself and I think everyone else can wear it, so I wear it as well.” She supports her son and his choices. He says he won’t stop wearing the purse.
