Oklahoma City elementary school made a 5-year-old turn his Michigan shirt inside out

Five-year-old Cooper Barton donned his blue Michigan shirt to class at Wilson Elementary last week.

He’s from a family of proud Wolverine fans, but Barton was embarrassed when the principal asked him to turn the shirt inside out.

KWTV News9 reported that the principal was following the Oklahoma City School System dress code which doesn’t allow any college apparel to be worn in school unless it’s OU, OSU or another in-state school. It also doesn’t allow pro gear either.

Now, Barton’s mother is outraged and the school system is looking into changing its dress code.

“They should really worry about academics. It wasn’t offensive,” Barton said to News 9. “ He’s 5.”
