Wisconsin school holds first "Switch It Up" day and some parents were outraged

Students were to dress as opposite gender

Milwaukee, WI - An arts and humanities elementary school in Wisconsin held a "Switch It Up Day."

The point was to have students dress as members of the opposite sex. Boys would dress like girls for the day, and vice versa. It was all part of the school's spirit week.

The day was originally called "Gender Bender Day" but some parents complained, and the school changed the name.

Even after the title switch, many parents lashed out and even kept their kids home from class.

The Tippecanoe School for the Arts and Humanities says they never saw a problem with the event, adding it was not mandatory for the students.
