Eighth-grader chastised at school for having picture of military brother on binder

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. –  Like many middle-schoolers, 13-year-old Brianna Gentry likes to decorate her school notebook with pictures of herself, her family and her friends, but one of these photos is extra special. She keeps a photo of her brother Derrick, a military policeman stationed in Montana, in a prominent spot.
"My brother's very important to me," Brianna told KTLA. "I haven't seen him in a while."
So Brianna and her mother Jaima Eudy were shocked when an administrator at Golden Valley Middle School in San Bernardino told the girl she was breaking school rules by displaying the photo, as well as one of her softball team, even though there is no explicit rule against having  photos on binders.
