Kilt Causes Controversy at High School Dance

Nathan Warmack, who wore a traditional kilt to a high school dance, has asked for dress codes to be changed after he was forced to change his clothes by a school official.

Warmack, a football player at his Jackson, Missouri high school, became interested in his family's Scottish heritage after viewing Braveheart and bought the kilt to wear to the dance.

When told to change his clothes, Warmack stated that the principal said, "This is my dance, and I'm not going to have students coming into it looking like clowns." Principal Rick McClard denies having made the statement.
