5th Grader Suspended For Anti-Obama Shirt

Take the poll at the bottom of this post, or the top left of the sidebar …
An 11 year old 5th grader was suspended for wearing the shirt pictured above to school.
An 11-year-old in Aurora says his first amendment rights are being trampled after he was suspended for wearing a homemade shirt that reads “Obama is a terrorist’s best friend.”
The fifth grader at Aurora Frontier K-8 School wore it on a day when students were asked to wear red, white and blue to show their patriotism.
According the the boy’s father, the school district told the student, Daxx Dalton, that he had the choice of changing his shirt, turning his shirt inside out or being suspended.
The best part is that the school’s only response to the press was that they respect a student’s right to free speech.
Aurora Public Schools would not talk about the case but said the district “Respects a student’s right to free speech, such as the right to wear specific clothing,” but administrators say they review any situation that interrupts the learning environment.
So are we to believe the boy interrupted the learning environment? How?
