High school bans leggings, students disagree

ROCKPORT, Mass. — No more leggings at school – that’s what’s happening at a high school in Massachusetts.

FOX25 reported that more than 20 students were sent home last week from Rockport High School for wearing leggings.

Faculty members at the school complained students were not complying with the dress code policy in the student handbook.

Teachers said the skin-tight leggings are too revealing – but students disagree.

“We’re not trying to be out there trying to be sexy or we’re trying to get boys attention we’re just wearing them so we can be comfortable,” said Katharine Boucher, a student.

Some parents said there are more important things that the school should be concerned about.

“I just think it’s absolutely ridiculous, there’s no reason for this to have been blown out of proportion. This is crazy, these poor kids,” said Janine Boucher, a parent.
