Another day, another ludicrous story of how a young girl is being harassed by school officials for something she’s either wearing or not wearing. This time around, there’s a new report that says a 12-year-old girl was suspended from school because her jeans were too tight. Yep – the school administration sent her home because they thought her jeans were too tight.
Since when did tight jeans get in the way of someone’s education? Here’s a little more from Yahoo Parenting:
Morgan Hull, a student at the Franklin Community Township School Corporation in Indianapolis, went to school last Wednesday in a pair of jeans that were deemed in violation of the school’s dress code because they were too form-fitting. As a result, Morgan was sent to in-school suspension.
Morgan’s mother, Traci Hull, says she found out about the suspension in an email from the school. Traci says she sent Morgan in a new pair of pants on Thursday, but she was again told they were too tight. The same thing happened Friday. “She is extremely petite, so trying to find clothes that fit her is difficult,” Hull told RTV6. “I just don’t think it’s appropriate to send her to school in sweatpants. It’s dumbfounding; I just don’t get it.”
I honestly feel for the mother and daughter in this case as everything at Aeropostale or even Target is skinny, tight and form fitting. That’s simply the style right now and I see nothing wrong with the pants.
But seriously, wouldn’t it be easier if schools had uniforms or certain dress codes students had to adhere by all year round? It would sure make things a whole lot easier for the parents and perhaps for students too, as they would focus less on their wardrobe and more on their classwork.
