Student Suspended For Wearing Pro Christian T-shirt

AP 5-3-12

CHESTER BASIN, N.S. - A Grade 12 student in Nova Scotia has been suspended for wearing a T-shirt publicizing his religious beliefs.

The South Shore Regional School Board suspended William Swinimer from Forest Heights Community School in Chester Basin for five days for wearing a shirt emblazoned with the words, "Life is wasted without Jesus."

School board Supt. Nancy Pynch-Worthylake says the wording on the shirt is the problem because it is aimed at the beliefs of others.

Pynch-Worthylake says the school has spoken with Swinimer a number of times about the shirt, asking him not to wear it again.

She says the school tried mediation with the student before suspending him.
