“(She) was told the outfit she was wearing made, or could make her, or the teacher’s assistant, who is a male, feel uncomfortable. So she was removed from class, brought down to the principal’s office and sent home,” Wilson explained.
Christopher Wilson says his daughter walked home from school in tears— and he has been left with many questions about what happened, and why her choice of clothing would be a problem in the first place.
He says his daughter Karis, who is in Grade 12 at NorKam Secondary, was singled out by her teacher for what she was wearing when she showed up for class on Tuesday.
Karis was wearing a white turtleneck with a black knee length dress with lace trim.
Her classmates walked out in support for her the following day.
