Raymond Hosier clinged to his rosary beads and he doesn’t plan on taking them off.
“They’re in honor of my brother and uncle and that’s how it’s gonna stay,” he said.
Raymond said on Monday that the principal at Oneida Middle School told him to take off or hide his rosary per school policy. But he didn’t and went back to school on Tuesday. When Raymond went in on Wednesday he was suspended.
District leaders tell FOX23 News and the school’s policy states that students may not wear beads out of concern they may be gang related.
