An eighth-grade teacher at Genoa-Kingston Middle School in Illinois ordered Michael McIntyre to turn his T-shirt inside out or face suspension. She said the Marine Corps T-shirt with interlocking rifles depicted on the front violated the school dress code. When a local TV station asked about the incident, Superintendent Joe Burgess said the T-shirt does not violate any dress code and if the teacher had taken the time to consult with the principal he would have told her that.
