Superintendent: ‘I Don’t Want To See Anyone’s Ass Hanging Out Of Their Shorts.”
Ronda Bass, an Oklahoma school superintendent, upset some students and parents last week when she publicly made examples of them for wearing “inappropriate attire.”
“As I was greeting the children coming in I knew we had a major, major problem on our hands,” she told Oklahoma City NBC affiliate KFOR-TV.
Bass decided to immediately address the issue of revealing clothing being worn by certain female students. It’s not clear if this discussion included just some students or the entire student body. What was said is also being disputed.
Bass told KFOR that she asked “How many of you in here believe that there are female students on the campus today that are dressed completely inappropriate?” And most of the students’ hands went up.
Students recall more colorful language. Senior Stephanie Stewart alleges that the Superintendent said “‘Have y’all ever seen any ‘skanks’ around this school? I don’t want to see anyone’s ass hanging out of their shorts.”
The student also said Bass performed a dress code check personally. Stewart said the superintendent asked girls to bend over to see if their butt was visible. Some girls were sent home because of their clothes.
