A mother in Texas is crying foul about what she calls the injustice she believes she endured at her daughter’s high school over the attire she wore on the premises.
This mom, Joselyn Lewis was dressed in a Marilyn Monroe t-shirt dress with a scarf on her head when she went to Madison High School to enroll her 15-year-old daughter. When an administrator apparently told her that her dress was too short and head scarf was out of code and wouldn’t allow her on the property, the mother took to the media to put ’em on blast.
Lewis shared with PEOPLE that she accompanied her 15-year-old daughter to Madison High School Monday morning to help her enroll after the teen had previously been bullied at Lamar High School.
“When I went to Lamar, I had no problems, but when I got to Madison High School, they refused me access to the premises because of what I had on,” she told KPRC. “I mean, I didn’t understand why my headscarf and my dress would conflict with me enrolling someone in school.”
Ms. Lewis asked to see the parent dress code policy, the school did not produce the policy and ultimately called the cops when she refused to leave the premises.
“They called them on me and I guess he was coming to tell me to leave, but I was already on the phone with the school board,” she said, adding: “I can wear what I want to wear.”
“I don’t have to get all dolled up to enroll her to school. My child’s education, anyone’s child’s education, should be more important than what someone has on. That shouldn’t matter.”
