I have a couple cousins who are hs vice principals in different cities.

Last time i saw them they both mentioned how often when they send girls home for wearing skimpy outfits, the parents defend their daughters banging bodies and how "if you've got it, flaunt it".

Ok, kid doesn't look like she put on 50 pounds. That pic they ran on the article makes her look much, MUCH heavier. Still, I can see why they didn't run these. Mom looks like a man in a dress. Nothing wrong with that, if that's what makes you happy, but I imagine it wouldn't make too many sympathetic to the kid, either.

log_jammin: I didn't read the article, but geeez...the dress was too short by the schools rules. let it go.


Um, actually, most school dress codes are "fingertip length" at a minimum. On the kid, it's far longer than that. It even meets many churches' standard of "no more than one inch above the knee while standing" (that's standing with both feet together) for the kid. It's possible that the issue isn't the skirt length at all, but the bustline. I might be a little iffy on it for a day of high school classes, but it's not inappropriate for most other uses for a 17 year old young woman.

Either way, she'd worn it about a half a dozen times throughout the school year without ever being sent home or warned about it--which you'd know if you'd actually read the article. That's why the parent had an issue. I would have too.

The school I teach at used our own football field this year for graduation (first time in a while from what I understand). It's much more cost-effective than renting a venue, and this is in an urban area.

But what does graduating on a football field have to do with being in Hicksville? That is what we are questioning, your correlation of having graduation on a football field and being a hick.

You know I always hate when people use the "I did it X number of times before and nobody ever said anything, why is it wrong now?". I don't even know why people try to use that if there is a clearly defined rule that is being violated. If you ask me it really does show stupidity and immaturity. If it is against the rules it is against the rules, it doesn't matter if she was able to get away with it before. You don't see drug dealers walking into court trying to use that as a defense. "Your Honor, I sold crack on that corner everyday for 6 months and the cops didn't say boo to me then, so I shouldn't be in trouble for it now. Case closed!".

Seriously, subby. The sentence construction you're looking for is "too short a dress," not "too short OF a dress."

Similar examples:

"Too long an article"
"Too silly a statement"
"Too small a care"

All of which refer to something that is too.... to meet what is required of it.

Damn, when did schools start requiring girls to wear their dresses barely above the knee? I remember girls in my high school wearing skirts that showed half their thigh, and nearly all of their leg when they sat down and crossed their legs. No, it wasn't that distracting; well, maybe a little, but they didn't stop us from learning in class either.

I went to a public school and fingertip length was the rule (or two inches above the knee). No hats or shorts (except for gym). Small town Michigan. But that 20-30 years ago so I'm sure things have loosened up by now.

I hit the exact sweet spot for girl's clothing in high school. Rural Tennessee in the mid- to late-70s. Short shorts, halters, tube tops. A couple girls occasionally went barefoot to school. Nobody said a thing.

Bendal: Damn, when did schools start requiring girls to wear their dresses barely above the knee? I remember girls in my high school wearing skirts that showed half their thigh, and nearly all of their leg when they sat down and crossed their legs. No, it wasn't that distracting; well, maybe a little, but they didn't stop us from learning in class either.


My high school had a teacher who wore skirts like that.  She also wore stiletto heels and liked to sit on her desk with her legs crossed.  Her class was very popular with all the guys who were, I'm sure, deeply interested in the history she was teaching.  I think they studied flags too as they discussed what color was flying daily.
She got fired for some reason, probably due to controversial historical views.

As for TFA, I'd say that the skirt being too short would be less of an issue than the neckline being rather closer to he navel than her neck.  But whatever, if you're getting that distracted by a little bewb or bootie you're probably doomed to die crashing your car when a hottie walks by...or to being a politician.
