One wonders what was going through the mind of Edmonson County High School Principal Tommy Hodges when he ordered a teenage girl to get on her knees so he could measure her dress length. The Kentucky school has a dress code requiring skirts to end no more than six inches above the knee.
Amanda said she felt "embarrassed" and "humiliated" by having to kneel on the ground, especially with her mom and dad watching.
"I didn't really appreciate having to get down on my knees, especially while I was in a dress," she said.
She said the first time Hodges measured her, she was in dress code, with 5 inches. However, she said Hodges then made her walk across the room with her hands up and kneel back down, to check if her dress would ride up.
She said her dress was then 8 inches above the knee, and she went home because she was "technically" out of code.
