So, were the administrator’s actions a knee-jerk response to what was a perfectly acceptable outfit? Ripped jeans are, after all, on-trend right now. Well, McKinlay certainly wasn’t impressed. In fact the disgruntled mom took to Facebook that evening to post a rant about it.
In an open letter addressed to the school district of Florida’s Palm Beach County, McKinlay wrote, “My daughter wore a pair of jeans today to school. They had a hole in the knee. In the middle of a quiz in her History class, a male administrator came into [the] classroom.” But it was what happened next that the mom found most baffling.
McKinlay claimed that the administrator then “told [my daughter that] she needed to consider the guys in her class and their hormones when choosing her wardrobe. [He then] yanked her out of class and threw her into in-school suspension for the remainder of the day. So, she missed an entire day of core classes and couldn’t finish her quiz.”
