You may have come across a number of startling incidents about schools and their wardrobe rules but we bet you’ll be appalled with this recent event involving a 13-year-old girl.
According to local media outlets, a young girl from John Smeaton Academy in Leeds was forced to isolate because her school officials didn’t approve of her clothing. Moreover, when it came down to what the girl was actually wearing, many couldn’t believe how harsh the school reacted to trousers that revealed nothing but her ankles.
After seeing her dressed in that attire, officials ordered the young girl who goes by the name of Olivia Harrison, to change into clothes that lay in the lost property immediately.
Moreover, she was even told by one of the staff members on campus that her pants revealed too much and that was just a bizarre ordeal for many to digest.
The student explained to the school’s administration that she felt that there was clearly nothing wrong with her wardrobe but they failed to listen and ordered her to comply or leave campus.
When questioned about the incident, the school stood firmly by their rules, adding how they are proud that they follow international guidelines and that was the right thing to do.
Speaking for a recent interview, the school’s officials also shed light on how they felt that showing ankles was a big no in their wardrobe policy as it served as a huge distraction for others, including both teachers as well as other pupils.
The girl was immediately sent home for isolation as she failed to comply with their instructions. Now, her family and other parents are taking notice of the act, calling it absolutely ridiculous and beyond absurd.
“I was told that my trousers were too much and they showed too much of my figure,” the young girl commented. “I was so confused!”
