It was a typical late September morning in 2018 when McKinlay’s daughter headed off to school as she normally did. There was nothing particularly special about the day. It was hot, which was normal for Palm Beach County, Florida and the last of the summer weather was finally coming to a close. However, little did McKinlay’s daughter know that her choice of outfit was about to set off a crazy chain of events.

It was during her history class when McKinlay’s daughter was approached by one of the administrators of Forest Hill High School. They immediately pulled her out of class and handed her a suspension for the rest of the day. But why? Well, it seemed the jeans she was wearing were in direct violation of the school’s dress code due to a ripped knee.

Now, most people would think the administrators were overreacting. For starters, ripped jeans are totally the style now. Also, is it really worth a student losing out on an entire day of school? To say Melissa McKinlay was pissed off would be an understatement, and she immediately went on Facebook to share her anger with the school.
