The school's outward reasoning for this fact is related to the amount of bullying that Bruce has received for his enjoyment of the show. Bruce claims that he has been punched, pushed, and, worst of all, called names!
Being the natural

We all know from experience or otherwise that schools tend to not really care when it comes to bullying, because public schools are cold cruel places where we supposedly spend "the best years of our lives", where emotional growth is stunted almost as much as real educational growth. So why would this school in North Carolina take such a personal interest in this student's well-being?
As we're sure many of you are, we were very worried that the school was just going soft. Using our "investigative reporting" techniques, we were able to obtain an interview with the school's principal (who clearly has a Rarity waifu).
"People are really just misunderstanding the whole issue," he claims. "We're not asking him to stop wearing it because of what is happening to him; we're asking him to stop because we believe he is on a dangerous path that we do not wish to see him continue down."
One of Bruce's teachers seemed to echo this statement. "It would be one thing if he was wearing, say, a Rarity backpack," she says, "but our school cannot simply stand by and allow this innocent young boy to turn into a Dashfag!"

"It's a really scary thing," said one of his friends. "I mean, I've heard of people turning Dashfag on the internet, but I never really thought it could happen so close to home until now."
Inspection of the backpack in question seemed to demonstrate the slow transformation that has consumed Bruce. Among various school supplies, Bruce's mother was dismayed to find evidence that her son had indeed came inside Rainbow Dash.
