Jackson, Mo., school officials have apologized to a teenager who was ordered to change clothes after he wore a kilt to a school dance. Jackson High School senior Nathan Warmack received a letter Monday from the school district superintendent, Ron Anderson, who said he apologized for “the fact that he was humiliated and not permitted to wear his kilt” to the dance. Anderson also promised to train staffers in properly interpreting the dress code. Warmack, 18, said his actions helped fight discrimination.

The decision sparked an Internet petition and angered Scottish organizations that insisted the student’s outfit was appropriate. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
