Praise has flooded in for a teenage boy who wore a sports bra to school to support a female classmate.

Abstract from this. Track all the details.

Raymond Deane was left “angry and upset” after a teacher at Hugh Baird College disciplined the girl and sent her home for wearing a similar garment.

The 15-year-old said he thought the girl should have been taken to the side and spoke to and not humiliated in front of everyone.

Unbeknownst to his mum Kim, Raymond asked his sister and her friends if he could borrow their sports bras to wear to school in protest.

His actions have been labelled as admirable by dozens of people who have praised him for “standing up for what he believes in”.
