The controversy over a transgender student at South Panola High School continues and this time, students are protesting. About 30 to 40 students at the school say they were not allowed inside Wednesday because they were wearing gym shorts and sweatpants. The kids violated the dress code in an effort to tell school officials that the special treatment of the transgender student is unfair. The kids say she is violating the dress code by not wearing clothing appropriate for her gender.
