Officials at New Mexico's Mesilla Elementary School told fifth-grader Chris Walker not to wear his Hillary Clinton T-shirt to school anymore. When his dad called to find out why, he said he was told some parents had complained that students were discussing politics during recess. A school spokeswoman said students were "making ugly comments" about Clinton and Donald Trump and teachers teaching about the U.S. political system want students to focus on the electoral process not the "personal dynamics" of the candidates.
