LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A Las Cruces father says his son is no longer allowed to wear a pro-Hillary Clinton T-shirt to school.

Philip Walker told the Las Cruces Sun-News (https://bit.ly/2eTIa1e) on Friday that his 10-year-old son has been wearing a “Hillary Clinton 2016” shirt once a week for the past several weeks.

But Chris Walker says he was recently instructed to no longer wear it because school officials are concerned about heated political conversations between students in the schoolyard.

Philip Walker says he called the school principal, who said she was considering implementing a new rule banning political shirts during the campaign season.

Las Cruces Public Schools spokeswoman Jo Galvan says principals have can modify a school dress code if the attire is disrupting the learning environment.
