Political correctness lost this round.
A Harnett County high school principal has been replaced, a week after she asked a high school student to remove a jersey that bore President Donald Trump’s name on the back.
The Harnett school system on Friday announced a new principal for Harnett Central High School. The district said the change is directly related to the actions taken by former Harnett Central Principal Cindy Gordon last week in asking the student not to wear the Trump shirt.
The district announced leadership changes at several of its schools, including Harnett Central. The changes are “effective immediately,” according to the district news release.
The high school had a patriotic theme for the football game on Oct. 5, ABC11 reported.
Harnett Central parent Mike Collins told the news station that the high school’s principal asked his 18-year-old son to remove the jersey because it was “too political” for some at the football game.
