Yesterday, we reported on a high school student who was kicked out of prom for wearing a backless dress, today comes another supposed dress code violation that's even more absurd. A student was suspended for wearing a dress that the school deemed "too revealing" – even though the girl was completely covered.
Sci Tech Harrisburg High School student Alexus Miller-Wigfall designed the red lace gown with her mother, Alisha Sneed. They both knew the school's dress code guidelines before the prom and designed the dress to have sleeves added and remove a leg-slit to make it fit the rules.
According to a report from PennLive, Alexus was told by a school administrator that she would be suspended because her dress was considered "too revealing." Alexus' mom told PennLive, "I couldn't believe it. I don't see anything wrong with that dress. What do they want her to wear, a turtleneck?"
Alexus further explained that the assistant principal told her, "You have more boobs than other girls. The other girls have less to show."
So, because she's plus-sized, the dress is considered inappropriate, but if she had smaller breasts and less cleavage it would be okay? Crazy, right?
Her mother complained to the school about the suspension and the next day, Alexus' in-school suspension referral slip was ripped up. Alexus' mom commented, "I was not going to let her serve in-school suspension, because that would have gone on her permanent record," adding, I'm still angry about how this was handled and what was said to my daughter."
Do you think some school's are going too far with their strict prom night dress codes?
