At this school, education doesn't come first

When Melissa Barber, the mother of a 17-year-old teenager from Joplin, Missouri, got a call from her daughter's high school saying she had broken the dress code, she could not believe what she was hearing. She had gone to class wearing a long-sleeved shirt with a closed collar, jeans and black boots. What could be the problem?

Barber ran to the school, where she discovered the terrible injustice and humiliation that her daughter had been subjected to.

Shortly after she shared it in on Facebook, where it has now been shared almost 55,000 times since September 8.

'She was sent to the Child Development office by her teacher, Mrs. Morris. When my daughter asked why she was being expelled, this teacher told her that "busty women should wear clothes that cover the gutter". "Big women have to dress accordingly." My daughter had just been called "busty" and "big-sized" in front of the whole class.'

The director defended the teacher in front of Barber, saying that 'they had never had a problem with her before', but Barber was not going to keep quiet in that situation.

'I started saying that my daughter was being sexualised by her teacher in front of the whole class, she was embarrassed and horrified, she asked to change classes with another teacher, they said no, he continued defending the teacher, I could see that we were not going get my daughter in a situation where her self-esteem was not completely destroyed, she's there to learn, all this time she has been losing her education while we are in a room arguing about her breasts.

'How often does this happen to your children? It seems one more way to have the girls uneducated.'
