High School Student Wears Plethora of Inappropriate Clothing To School

East Coweta High School is facing some controversy after a photo of a student surfaced on social media while wearing a white Ku Klux Klan hood and carrying a Confederate flag.

The student's identity has not been released, but it caused an outrage from both students and parents. Lorenzo Lewis graduated last year, and he was sent the photo. He decided to post the image to his Twitter.

Lewis tweeted "It left me speechless that a person could be so ignorant as to not only dress like that at school but pose for a picture as well. Someone sent me the picture and I decided to post it."

The school principal, Steve Allen, wrote a letter to parents letting them know that the two students involved have been identified and are being disciplined.

He wrote, "The photo came to the high school administration’s attention during the school day. The two students who were involved were identified and an immediate investigation was conducted. From the school’s investigation, it was determined that no specific threat was made in the incident."

The photo came out a week after it was announced that a Ku Klux Klan chapter in Georgia's fight for the right to Adopt-A-Highway is headed to the state supreme court after a three-year battle.
