Principals stupidity makes him famous worldwide

Headteacher to say sorry for 'cross-dressing' comment to kilted pupil

THE principal of a United States school has been asked to apologise for forcing a kilt-wearing Scottish-American student to change his clothes.
Nate Taggart, spokesman for Weber School District in Utah, said Craig Jessop has been asked to extend an apology to Gavin McFarland, 14, from Hooper, after the school official's comments last week.

One of the objections was that by wearing a kilt, the boy could be mistaken for a cross-dresser.

The pupil said he wore the kilt twice in the past two weeks to Rocky Mountain Junior High as a prop for an art project, a local newspaper reported.

Mr Jessop told the boy that the outfit could be misconstrued as cross-dressing. Mr Taggart said the district recognises the kilt as an expression of the boy's Scottish heritage and that it was not inappropriate.

Wow stupidity preserved for all time on the internet. Congratulations!
