High school politics turned controversial last week after a campaign video by a California student featured his friends dressed as ISIS terrorists.
According to Fox News, the student at San Ramon Valley High School created the video as part of his campaign for student body president, pledging to protect his classmates from ISIS fighters if they were attacked.
The school district stripped the boy of his title as president, but reinstated it after the boy's parents threatened to file a lawsuit.
Superintendent Rick Schmitt sent a letter to parents about the incident. “The District understands the public's interest in this issue, but the District cannot comment on the specifics related to a student's education,” he wrote.
“As a community, moving forward, we will continue our focus on creating opportunities for students and staff to engage in open and honest dialogues about the importance of words,” he added.
