Why was this decision made?

Quote:
A Kelowna middle school has banned students from wearing popular breast cancer awareness wristbands because they say the bracelets are inappropriate.

The bright green bracelets, which have the slogan 'I [love] boobies!' printed on them are part of a youth-oriented breast cancer awareness campaign by Keep A Breast Canada.

Springvalley Middle School banned the wristbands last month, because staff felt the language is inappropriate for teenagers, said School District 23 Superintendent Hugh Gloster.
