Basically, this girl, Miranda Larkin, a new resident of a town in FL, moved from Seattle. She wore this outfit to her new school, and was stopped because of her skirt by a teacher. The rule of the school is that it has to be at least to the knee. The skirt clearly isn't. She claimed she didn't know about the rule (but we never know, since she only claims it). Her mother was outraged by the fact that they then "bullied" her in to wearing the "school dress code violation outfit". Which consists of swetpants (which in my opinion, is even more of a dress code violation). Sweats SHOULD NOT be worn in public

I agree with the mother. There is nothing wrong with having a school dress code, dress codes should be enfaced and violators should be punished. However, I disagree with forcing a child to wear a "shame suit" around school because of that. They should have just called someone to bring the girl a different outfit to wear and then sent her back to class.
Most teachers will say that dress codes are in place to limit distractions in class. Therefore, giving a student a "shame outfit" to wear that consists of red sweatpants and an oversized yellow T-shirt with "Dress Code Violator" bolded on the front, is only furthering the distraction issue. Especially if this was only the first time she violated the dress code, at least give her a warning, there's no reason to embarrass and shame her.1
