In Alabama a high school senior was suspended for wearing a prom dress that school officials said was too short at the hem and too revealing on top. But when she got to prom Saturday, officials told her it was too short and too revealing. But principal Trey Holloday said it violated school policy stating that dresses cannot have cleavage falling below the breastbone or hems more than 6 inches above the knee. But Holloday said all parents and students were told about it not once, but three times. Of the students who attended prom, 18 violated the policy, he said. Seventeen of them chose to be paddled, while DeRamus chose a three-day suspension, Holloday said.

The dress was inappropriate and the school was right to punish students who violated the dress code. And I agree! Maybe they should have had a copy of the dress code on hand, or referred to it, before selecting the dress. Rules are rules regardless of the situation, unless otherwise indicated. I have no sympathy for this girl or for her mother, or for the girls who got paddled. The rules were crystal clear and they chose to defy them. The school is right to impose standards of decency and enforce them.

Although im not quite sure how I feel about the dress it was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. She should have been allowed to attend prom As for the paddling? What type of punishment is that? Now i have seen some revealing prom outfits and the one Erica Deramus was not one of them. I think the school made a big deal out of nothing.
