We’ve seen a lot of insane dress code regulations in the past few years as students fight back against unfair practices, but this one might take the cake. When Lori Ann Orr’s son was sent home from school because of a dress code violation, she was baffled. Ethan Orr, a student at Laurens Middle School in South Carolina, was sent to the principal’s office after a dress code inspection determined that his jeans were not appropriate.
Lori received a call from the school stating that she had to either bring Ethan a different pair of pants or take him home. Lori still didn’t understand how her son, who left the house in jeans, could be violating any school dress code. She learned the problem was a hole in his pants. Upon taking a closer look at her son’s pants, there was no hole present. There was just a slightly frayed area — normal wear and tear — but definitely no hole. The school wouldn’t budge on its stance, so she took to Facebook to share the situation with other parents.
