Two Brothers Sent Home Early on First Day of School Because of Logo Controversy


We’re big fans of charter schools and things like school uniforms, but everything can be overdone.

Two brothers were sent home early on their first day of school for not having the correct uniforms in Brooklyn Park on Tuesday.

Regan Narine couldn’t have been more eager to get through his first day of 3rd grade at Athlos Leadership Academy – “I was excited to meet my teacher, get new friends but instead I was sent home.”

He and his little brother Raysahwn were pulled from class in the morning for not wearing the school logo on their shirts.

We’ll let you be the judge. Here’s a picture of the kids on their first day of school.


They look pretty neat to me. Personally, I think the school was out of line, given that it was the first day of school. Contact the parents and go over the dress code and work out a reasonable accommodation, but don’t send the kids home for being very neatly dressed.

Had they been wearing “Straight Outta Compton” shirts I’d agree, send ’em home. But they weren’t. Sometimes adults are just stupid.
