Last week, a teenager made headlines across the globe after she was sent home from school due to her outfit making a teacher "feel uncomfortable."

Of course, this sparked an unbelievable surge of outrage and now, the girl's father has spoken out about the shocking incident. Read on to hear what he had to say...

Now, we all know that teachers hold huge amounts of responsibility...

Because they are responsible for the education and livelihoods of their classroom which, ultimately, will help shape their kids into well-rounded adults.

The majority of children and young people look up to their teachers...

And they see them as a solid influence in their young lives.

So if a teacher is seen doing anything...

Their classroom will more than likely mimic whatever it is they're doing because at the end of the day, they're role models!

And more than often, if a teacher has to discipline or send a pupil home...


They're doing it for their own good... right?

Well, we all know that some teachers can be notoriously old-fashioned...


And that is what brings us to today's shocking story.

Last week, a seventeen-year-old girl was left in tears after her school in Kamloops, British Colombia, sent her home for wearing an "inappropriate outfit"...

And she was told by her teachers that her attire reminded them of a "lingerie outfit."

And even more shockingly so...

The female teacher is said to have told the teenager, whose name is Karis, that her outfit could "possibly make a male student or teacher feel awkward," according to Metro.

Karis was taken to the principal's office where he went on to agree that her outfit was inappropriate...


And he allegedly showed her the dress code, which bans students from wearing clothing "that is distracting to teaching or learning."

Quite predictably, a surge of outrage was triggered online upon hearing Karis' story...

And people were baffled over how something as trivial as an outfit would be enough to send a pupil home from school.

But on the other hand, many found themselves agreeing with the teacher...

And the fact that Karis should be abiding to the school's dress code rather than just wearing whatever she wants.

Of course, Karis' father, Chris Wilson, was understandably outraged over his daughter's dismissal...

And he took to Facebook to write an angry post about the experience:

"Today, my daughter was sent home for wearing clothing that made her female teacher and her male student-teacher 'feel uncomfortable'. Centered out in front of her class and told she needs to leave class and brought her to the VP's before she went home in tears," he wrote.

​He continued:


"After asking her how she would like me to handle it she said she wanted to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen to the students that come after her. Please stand with Karis and I and make sure that those involved are held accountable and that this never happens again."

Chris went on further...

And while he acknowledged that the vice-principal and principal handled the situation well, he said that "maybe if you're a teacher and you're distracted by clothing that your students are wearing, you're in the wrong profession. Maybe you should try something new."

Chris more recently spoke to Global News, explaining his continuing disbelief over his daughter's treatment.


"I can't even explain how disappointing it is that in 2021, for a teacher to center a student out, and say 'what you're wearing is making people uncomfortable' and dragging her down to the principal's office. We shouldn't be treating our females like this. We shouldn't be telling them they can't dress a certain way."

Here's the outfit that caused all the fuss:

As you can see, Karis was wearing a white turtle-neck sweater with a black lace-detailed slip dress over it.

Do you think this outfit is way too inappropriate for the classroom? Or do you think it's totally harmless and Karis should have been allowed to wear it?
