A dress code rule has teachers and students in Washington D.C.'s Montgomery County talking Thursday morning after a student at Rockville High School says her principal told her that her outfit was inappropriate.
Laura Woche wore black leggings and a peach-colored sweater to school Wednesday, but was informed her outfit was inappropriate because she was wearing leggings with a shirt that was shorter than fingertip length.
“Girls should not be dressing provocatively in school because it, quote, distracts the boys, but that is not the case; this is not distracting,” her mother said. “This [outfit] is not inappropriate.”
Woche's mom says the school gave Laura two choices: wear an oversized sweater or have her mom take her home.
