PBC Mayor Accuses School of Sexism Over Ripped Jeans

The mayor of West Palm Beach is asking the county's school district to discipline an administrator who removed her daughter from classes for wearing ripped jeans and lectured her to consider male classmates' hormones when choosing her wardrobe.

In a Facebook post, West Palm Beach Mayor Melissa McKinlay said her daughter was sent to in-school suspension at Forest Hill High School. 


She accompanied the post with a picture of her daughter's jeans, which were ripped at the knee.

McKinley says while the jeans may have "slightly" violated the dress code, she called the male administrator's comments "girl shaming" and sexist.

Principal Mary Stratos said she'll investigate the alleged administrator's alleged comments. 

She defended the school's dress code as gender-neutral.
