My name is Helena Yoest, and I was harassed by the principal of my school because of a shirt.
Ok, so I went to class, just like a regular school day, I had the shirt on, no one was offended or anything by it.
Then my teacher- Mr. Young- says “Mrs. Schaffner wants to see you”
I walk over to her in the hall, she was talking to some other teachers with one or two students flocking around her.
She stops talking when she sees me, pulls me over to a corner, and says plainly
“you can’t wear the shirt”
Wow. 5 minutes into the day and I’ve been caught in this t-shirt. (say sarcastically) Shoot.
I say very politely “may I go get something from my locker?”
Mrs.Shaffner says, “eh, yes”
So I go down to my locker to get a piece of paper, it’s a magical piece of paper that gets me out of trouble.
National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day From the American Life League.
Actually, it states my civil rights and how I CAN wear the shirt, no harassment.
I hand over the letter and she hands me a t-shirt with the school name on it. Oh joy.
So I head to the bathroom to change and I hear her say, “were going to have to visit the principal about this.”
So there I am, in the principal’s office. Mrs. Annan (the principal) reads the letter Mrs. Shaffner is babbling about how they’ve never had this happen before, while Mrs. Annan is reading.
Mrs. Shaffner gets called away to do vice principal stuff and
Mrs. Annan pulls up a chair to sit beside me. “How do you know about this political issue?” she asks. “My mom” I say.
“What would you think if a kindergartner went up to you and asked you what it is?” she says pointing at my shirt.
“I would say ‘it’s where doctors and hospitals kill babies'”
You should’ve seen her face when I said that. “I just don’t want you to be uncomfortable.”
She leads me to a bathroom “you can turn it inside out, or you can change, whichever you want” so I change into this ew yucky t-shirt with the school name on it, so they would be happy and quit bothering me.
This is how it was in the classroom:
“Whydya change your t-shirt?” my classmates ask.
“She made me” I say, which isn’t stretching the truth.
I went to art, and my teacher came in the middle of it and said
“walk with me” so I walk with him and he says “you can change into your shirt now, or after art, what do you want?”
I changed after lunch.
Can you believe that?
The principal of an elementary school, pressured and manipulated a 5th grade student to do her wills.
The principal, of all people! Wow.
