Camden County, NJ-(WTXF)-It's not easy being green. In fact, it could even get you suspended from elementary school, especially if you're wearing the wrong shade.

She says school officials told her not to bring her daughter back to class and as she told FOX 29's Brad Sattin it had everything to do with the color of her shirt.


8-year-old Kylie and her twin sister Karlie don't look like troublemakers, but Kylie was suspended from school. The reason, according to her mother: a violation of the dress code Monday. Their mother, Crystal, says she got a call from the vice principal at Winslow Township School 4.

“He wanted me to know that she can't wear that shirt and if she does wear that shirt again, she would be suspended,” she told FOX 29.

The district's policy states that shirts or blouses be white, dark green or navy blue with collars only. Kelly green is a violation. Crystal admits her conversation with the assistant principal and then the principal did get a bit heated.

“My child messed up, I messed it up for my child, and she be suspended next time for it, but to suspend a child over the shade of a shirt. I found it a little ridiculous," she explained.

It totally get where she's coming from and agree that it's a stupid dress code, but it's the dress code. It's not like they made it up on the spot. It was a rule that's already there. No need to cry when you're breaking rules that you already knew about.

Edit: Although looking at the picture, it's still kinda dark green. I figured it'd be lime green or some shit. I dunno... I'd probably fight it, too. Still not newsworthy, though.

You have to draw a line somewhere. You could always creep the color up bit by bit until you can use whatever color you want.

Yeah, you'd have to use a certain degree of discretion when deciding what's dark enough, otherwise, which could result in favoritism. Hopefully they've got a color swatch or some shit already determined to prevent these issues and this woman is just blowing everything out of proportion.

    Wow
  • jonas jonas:
    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:
    I've been using the translate app a lot on my phone. take a photo, translate. take another photo, translate again :D
  • jonas jonas:
    it also has voice translation, my colleagues sometimes use that
  • jonas jonas:
