This is a bit of old fashioned morality that I’m surprised still exists in the US in 2016:
Edmonson County High School senior Amanda Durbin got in trouble for wearing a dress that did not meet the stringent requirement of the Kentucky high school she attends. The dress, seen in the above picture, was considered to sit too high above her knees. Forget about the insanity of this kind of dress code, Amanda and other students say that since this past winter break, the enforcement of the dress code has become considerably more intense.
Amanda said the length of her dress was tested by her getting on her knees and a ruler measured how far the floor was from the end of her dress.
When the principal was told that the dress Ms. Durbin wore that day was one she could wear to church, Principal Hodges said that he was running a school, not a church.
