MOBILE COUNTY, AL (WALA) – A local teacher’s Facebook post is causing quite the controversy. She claims she was sent home from school to change her shirt because it had the word “pray” on it.
FOX10 News asked Mobile County Public Schools Superintendent Martha Peek about it.
When teacher Chris Burrell picked her shirt to wear to school on Monday morning, it reminded her of 11-year-old Aubreigh Nicholas. It has “just pray”on it, in support of “Aubreigh’s Army,” a fundraiser to help the young dancer from Semmes diagnosed with a rare and inoperable brain tumor last year.
But that’s not the way the school’s principal saw it.
