A Detroit, Michigan, teacher was fired after she tried to organize a fundraiser to support the family of Trayvon Martin.

Brooke Harris was dismissed from the Pontiac Academy for Excellence Middle School because the school's administration was opposed to the fundraiser.

The event would have entailed having the students pay a dollar each to attend school while wearing hoodies instead of their daily school uniform.

Superintendent Jacqueline Cassell says that although she doesn't oppose the idea, the fundraiser would have distracted the students from their studies.
