A family in suburban Genoa is upset with their son's teacher after he was told to remove his father's U.S. Marines T-shirt.
According to the Daily Chronicle, the Genoa-Kingston Middle School teacher objected to the 14-year-old boy's shirt because it displayed intersecting rifles across the chest.
The teacher reportedly told the student that the shirt was against school policy.
The boy's father, Daniel McIntyre, contacted FOX News after the incident, who reached out to school administrators who weren't aware of the situation.
School officials said had they known about the incident, the teacher's decision would have been overruled.
The dress code prohibits images depicting alcohol, drugs, violent behavior and offensive symbols, the newspaper reported.
