A student in a flap over her wearing of a Romney Ryan tee shirt will not be returning to her old high school, Charles Carroll High. Samantha Pawlucy says she is too uncomfortable to return.
PHILADELPHIA, PA (Catholic Online) - According to the family, their three children will be attending another school, possibly a charter school from now on.
Pawlucy gained national attention when she was humiliated by her math teacher for wearing the shirt.
The sixteen year-old girl did try returning to school on Tuesday and she was supported by local residents who staged a rally in her support out front. However, once she was inside the halls, she felt too uncomfortable.
The teacher has made a public apology. It is unclear to which school Pawlucy will transfer.
