Who Wears Short Shorts? BBC Tackles SOMSD ‘Dress-Coding’

Hot on the heels of Maplewood resident Jennifer Weiss Wolf’s article for Slate detailing her daughter’s experience at Maplewood Middle School being cited and punished for wearing short shorts, the BBC Altered States has produced a segment on the controversy. Watch it here.

The video features local students Lucero Shorter, Sarah Wolf, Ava Emilione, Monica Stemmermann, Madeleine Jaworski and Sofia Petros, as well as Jennifer Weiss Wolf. The group is challenging the school district’s dress code standards and promoting the use of #iammorethanadistraction.
