Students at a high school in Dearborn will be evaluated by teachers before prom. If their dresses aren't appropriate, they'll be given a Modesty Poncho:https://t.co/N0TGp5KJom pic.twitter.com/CuTW57M4ya— FOX 2 Detroit (@FOX2News) April 30, 2018
Honestly, I don't see the need for this at all. There should be rules and regulations sent out before the big event well in advanced so that dresses are appropriately selected. Once the letter is sent out, students have to time to ask if certain items are appropriate. If they get to the event and they don't meet the specifications then don't let them in.
Simple, right?! I don't know.
In Dearborn, Michigan, a Catholic high school has a “modesty poncho” for female students to wear at their dance if their dress is too revealing of their bodies. “We are trying focus on the inner beauty” of the girls, said the school’s theology teacher https://t.co/Hrhh6NtpLk— Niraj Warikoo (@nwarikoo) May 1, 2018
I went 12 years to Catholics school. Those are the rules. You don’t want to wear a “modesty poncho” then wear an appropriate dress. There are many beautiful dresses without exposing all you have to offer— Laura (@lfencyk) May 1, 2018
Private schools, like Catholic schools, do not use public funds and parent pay to send their kids their by choice, many for disipline. Which is why they can do whatever they want. It's up to the school and parents. Now, if it was a public school...then you'd have a case.— Possum (@Ladypossum) May 1, 2018
