No White House invitation or cause célèbre hashtags erupted over Twitter for the North Texas teen suspended last week after wearing an American flag T-shirt to high school. This happened on the same date, September 14, that Irving freshman Ahmed Mohamed brought to school his homemade suitcase clock.
To much quieter media fanfare, Seagoville High School officials in Dallas ISD punished junior Jaegur Goode for wearing an American flag T-shirt – and no one ever even saw the shirt. The stars and stripes were tucked away under a hoodie the teen sported. An assistant principal asked Goode to lift his sweatshirt which revealed the patriotic U.S. flag with the signature American bald headed eagle emblazoned over Old Glory.
That big reveal landed Goode in one day of In-School Suspension (ISS) for violating the school dress code policy. The decision was then reversed, most likely because the local FOX affiliate (KDFW) intervened alongside Goode’s mother.
According to KDFW-4, Goode, passionate about ROTC, hoped to earn a scholarship through the program. “He wants to go into the military,” his mother Shelly Goode told the TV news outlet. “He wants to help people, and any bad marks doesn’t look good.”
