We've heard of students violating schools' dress codes, but what about an accessory code? Skylar Davis, a 13-year-old at Anderson County Senior-Junior School, was suspended for bringing a bag to class. But it wasn't the bag's contents that lead to the suspension. Davis believes the principal did not approve of a boy carrying an accessory — a Vera Bradley bag — meant for girls. School officials say that students are simply not allowed to bring bags to class. Davis, however, noted that his female classmates carry purses regularly and have never been asked to remove them. He also points out that he has worn this bag since school started in August and was never reprimanded.
