Ahmed Mohamed Drops the Mic on Old High School, Says No to Going Back


Ahmed Mohamed, who was arrested for bringing a clock to school, was recently told he’d be “welcomed back” to MacArthur High School. Of course, being the total badass he is, he was like, “Nah, I’m good.”

Okay, maybe he didn’t say exactly that, but that’s how we’d like to imagine how it went down. His family said that they’ll be looking at other educational options, despite the school saying, “We’re confident that we can continue to provide him with an excellent education.” Just one note, though: it’s kind of hard to provide an excellent education if you keep arresting them for the extra projects they do.

We hope you find a way better school, Ahmed. You’re better than that noise.
