8th Grader Pulled Out of Class for Having Photo of Military Brother on Her Binder

A California eighth grader said she was pulled out of class and reprimanded for having photographs in her binder — snapshots that included her military policeman brother stationed in Montana.

Brianna Gentry, 13, is a student at Golden Valley Middle School in San Bernardino, Calif. She told KTLA-TV the photos — one of her softball team as well — apparently violated an unwritten rule against “added material” in the notebook for the advanced program she’s in.

“The counselor took me out of class twice telling me that the pictures are added material,” Brianna told KTLA. “But they haven’t pulled any other students with pictures out from their class. … Just me.”

Jaima Eudy, Brianna’s mother, was furious when she found out and wrote a letter to the school saying Brianna was being singled out and discriminated against for having a military photo.
