The high school teenager shares that she was left speechless after her school teacher made crude remarks about her dressing and sexually harassed her over her outfit even though she was wearing a cardigan. When the teenager tried to reason with the school staff, she was handed a 10-day suspension letter from the school.
A 14-year old teenager claims that she was told by her teacher that her dress is too revealing. The 14-year old told the local press that her female teacher made disturbing remarks about her clothes as the girl was leaving her classroom at Yulee Middle School in Florida.
“(The teacher) told me I was ‘letting them hang out for the whole world to see,” she said.
“I went to the bathroom and I came back and I said, ‘You need to stop sexualizing 14-year-old girls.’ I grabbed my stuff and I removed myself from the situation,” she added.
Wagner says the situation took a turn for the worst as she tried calling her parents but was forbidden from doing so. Then after an argument with the staff, she was handed a 10-day suspension.

Speaking to the local press, Wagner’s mother, Sarah said she understood why her daughter reacted in the way that she did. “I don’t think it’s OK for her to talk to teachers that way, but I understand why she was angry,” she said.
“She was basically sexually harassed by her teacher. … The teacher did apologise, she did understand what she did was wrong.”
The girl said she believes there’s a double standard when it comes to enforcing the dress code. “I believe that teachers are targeting women with mature bodies, women in general, absolutely,” she said. “So just because I have a little bit of breasts, I get targeted.”
When the local media contacted the school for comments, the school declined to discuss Wagner’s suspension to the New York Post and said it doesn’t comment on disciplinary matters involving students.
