(EAGNEWS) — ORANGE PARK, Fla. – A brouhaha is brewing between a mother and Florida school officials after a 15-year-old student was told she was violating the school’s dress code and given a garish outfit to wear instead.
On just her third day of school at Oakleaf High School, a teacher told Miranda Larkin the dress she was wearing was too short. Oakleaf’s dress code dictates that the hems of dresses and skirts need to be knee-length or lower. Young Larkin, who is new to the school, claims that she was unaware of the code.

But Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute, a former teacher at Deerfield High School on Chicago’s North Shore, told EAG News all schools have a dress code and young Larkin should have been aware of it.
After all, teenage girls are very fashion conscience.
