A Canadian father is raging after his adolescent little girl was sent home for wearing an outfit staff considered improper.
Christopher Wilson said Karis, 17, got back home crying after she was warned that her garments could cause a male schoolteacher to feel off-kilter, and it helped a female educator to remember an undergarments outfit.
Online new publishing outlet Mirror reports that Karis, a secondary school scholar in Grade 12, was wearing a knee-length dark dress with ribbon trim over a white turtleneck with long sleeves.
The school in Kamloops, British Columbia, insisted that the outfit abused its clothing standard.
Mr Wilson said the occurrence was ridiculous and there was nothing amiss with his girl’s unobtrusive outfit, blaming school staff for blowing up.
He claims an instructor hauled Karis out of her group and accompanied her to the principal’s office on Tuesday.
He said the school head later disclosed to him that she concurred the outfit was not immoral.
Karis’ mates at school organized a walkout the next day to show their help for her.
Mr Wilson disclosed to CBC News: “(Karis) was told that it could possibly make the male student teacher feel awkward and it could make (her female classroom teacher) feel awkward since it reminded her of a lingerie outfit.”
He at first griped about the occurrence in a live Facebook video that circulated online, with over 75,000 views.
The school district opened up to CBC News it would not remark on the occurrence.
