    A Student Was Denied His Diploma For Wearing The Mexican Flag At Graduation

    A Student Was Denied His Diploma For Wearing The Mexican Flag At Graduation


















    Ever Lopez, 18, wore the Mexican flag over his graduation robe at his high school graduation ceremony. The school withheld his diploma, claiming he violated the dress code.





    ASHEBORO, N.C. (AP) — "A North Carolina high school senior was denied his diploma because he draped a Mexican flag over his gown in violation of a graduation dress code, school officials said.
    A 68-second video of the graduation at Asheboro High School on Thursday shows the student wearing the flag over his gown, on his back and shoulders, as he proceeds toward the stage, WGHP reported. The video shows the student being handed a diploma holder and moving on to receive his diploma. It then shows him appearing to talk to people in the line for a few seconds before he returns to his seat without his diploma.


    Asheboro school officials defended the decision to withhold the student's diploma, saying that wearing a flag of any kind is a violation of the dress code."
    "The heart of the issue is the fact that the student did not follow the established dress code for the event and detracted from the importance and the solemnity of the ceremony," officials said in one of two statements. "Our dress code is in place to ensure the dignity of the event is upheld and is fair to all students."

    Indeed., He is probably here illegally.

    From the link:

    "In a separate statement, officials said they "continue working to resolve this issue with the student and his family so that he will receive his diploma from Asheboro High School."


    He may receive his diploma but not at the graduation ceremony.




    Note the editorial comment from the far left NPR:
    "The school withheld his diploma, claiming he violated the dress code."

    "Claiming." He violated the dress code. Period.

    Earl is probably a wanted felon hiding the the police.

    Manny Familia, a police officer, recently died trying to rescue a young teenager from a lake in a city park. I suppose Earl would peg him as an illegal alien, too.

    Ever Lopez seems to be an American teenager.

    Patrick does have somewhat of a point. There are lots of groups in America that are proud of their heritage and wave another countries flag. Such as FOE, Polish club, etc. I think the difference is you don't see them wrapping themselves in another countries flag and going to graduation ceremonies. It just makes them LOOK ungrateful. Whether or not they are we don't really know.

    The school did the right thing, a dress code is a dress code. If all students decided for themselves which rules they don't like and won't follow, there would be anarchy in the schools.
