A student in Canada was sent home because her outfit could make teachers ‘feel uncomfortable’. Watch her dad sl-am the school here: Christopher Wilson, from Kamloops, British Columbia, took to Facebook to vent his frustrat!on after his 17-year-old daughter Karis was sent home from Norkam Senior Secondary on Tuesday (23 February), after she turned up wearing a knee-length bla-ck dress with lace trim over a full-sleeved white turtleneck.
In his Facebook Live video – which has now been viewed more than 100,000 times – Christopher was visibly upset about the decision.
Explaining what occurred in the caption, he said: “Today my daughter was sent home for wearing clothing that made her female teacher and her male student teacher ‘feel uncomfortable’.
“Centred out in front of her class and told she needs to leave class and brought her to the VP’s before she went home in te-ars.
“After asking her how she would like me to handle it she said she wanted to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen to the students that come after her.
“Please stand with Karis and I and make sure that those involved are held accountable and that this never happens again.”
Speaking to CBC’s Radio West, he elaborated: Karis was told that it could possibly make the male student teacher feel *wkw*rd and it could make her female classroom teacher feel awkward since it reminded her of a lingerie outfit.
“It’s actually a very modest outfit when you actually look at it… I think the initial comments were based on the fact that it had lace.
“We kind of saw the aftermath of her coming home in tears and just really br*k*n up, confu-sed.
“There was a female who was singled out because what she’s wearing could make someone in a position of power over her feel uncomfortable. And the more you think of it, the more you say it, the more you understand that this is absurd.
“It shouldn’t happen.”

“We understand the parent is concerned about what happened to his daughter at school yesterday.
“We are also concerned about these all!gat!ons and are treating them seriously. The incident is currently under review. We will not comment on the incident specifically.
“Whenever a parent is concerned about their child at school we want to work with them for the best outcome for the student.”
