Army officer is told not to enter his daughter's high school because he's wearing his uniform

MyFoxDetroit: Lieutenant Colonel Sherwood Baker says he is just a father who was trying to help his daughter find her way at her new high school.
Sherwood, who has served in the Army for 24 years, was told by Rochester Adams High School security that if he wanted to get into the school with his daughter he was going to have to go home and change his clothes.
Baker’s wife Rachel Ferhadson says, “Before he was allowed in, the security guard stopped him and said sorry you’re not allowed in the school. Security told him men and women in uniform weren’t allowed because it may offend another student.
Baker says he was simply coming to the school to speak with his daughter’s counselor regarding her class schedule but was turned away at the doors because he was not wearing a tie.
Rochester Schools superintendent Robert Shaner, who is a veteran himself, quickly took care of the situation apologizing to the family for their troubles.
Shaner sent a letter to Fox 2 which says: “The district has apologized for any perception that individuals in uniform are not welcome in the school. The district does not have a policy excluding individuals in uniform and will be working with administration and the firm that handles our security to make sure district policies are understood and communicated accurately.”
The Baker family has scheduled a meeting with the principal of Rochester Adams High School in the coming days.
From 7online: “They told him some kids might not understand and might be offended. So they gave him a choice, told him he could phone in to the office or go home and change his clothes,” said Ferhadson. Baker was told of the same policy by four individual staff members at the school.
If high school kids don’t understand what it means to wear a uniform and a special snowflake might be offended, you have a serious problem in your education system (as if we already didn’t know that).

  1. Sorry-too little,too late. I still can’t see how wearing a uniform can possibly OFFEND someone;besides that,anyone who gets OFFENDED by a Military person in uniform,of ANY variety,OFFENDS ME,and should not be allowed into any American School.

  2. is it just me or does this seem like more conditioning for the masses? more throwing or tossing out of issues and seeing how the public reacts or does not react. I always like how the news, magazines, radio gets involved….how else would we hear of such negative things? How else would we have victims of issues? …more of behind the curtain stunts. (Prince of the power of the air) … that’s it!… just air….

  3. The high school these days are much more open and liberal than previous year gone by. It seems to be the BS excuse was coming from some liberal jerks. I doubt it would even faze them a bit.
    I know schools have decided to not let the military come into schools now and encourage them to join, but that started enough years ago, these kids would not have experienced it.
    Just some more liberal agenda forced down the throats.

  4. Doesn’t it make anyone wonder what the school security officers uniforms look like.

  5. Is this school anywhere near Dearborn-istan??

  6. D***, I’M offended!!
