Principal shames girls over short shorts

Some outraged parents gathered outside a Northwest Side school Monday night, to speak out against the school’s principal for shaming several female students.

At Decatur Classical School’s end-of-year awards ceremony in the school’s West Rogers Park gym, parents say the principal singled out seven girls during the end-of-year awards ceremony.

The Sun-Times reports that Principal Susan Kukielka said, “These are not girls of distinction because their shorts are too short.”

Parents say the girls were humiliated.

Kukielka later sent letters of apology to the students.

The school does not have an official dress code but school officials say announcements were made about proper school attire.

    Shame on you parents for letting your children dress like they do! Instill respect in your children by following proper school attire guidelines. Disrespect only leads to trouble down the line.

    Pay attention to rules and teach these kids to be proper and respect said rules. Don't blame the authorities because you do not wish to make your kids "responsible!"

      I agree, kids grow up not respecting anything and thier parents are always complaining about schools or cities. Parents need to take control and set a good mdel for al children. Not always allowing kids to break the rules.

    More adults need to take this stand! I've been a middle school teacher for almost forty years and am appalled and saddened to have witnessed the overall loss of respect in society…and when I address it, I am the one getting the flack. But, I'll continue to speak up and demand that dress codes be adhered to.
    It's just the right thing to do…and, believe it or not, many teens and parents do appreciate it….stand up for what is right, even if you're standing alone!

    That's the problem with today's youth. No respect for anything, anyone or themselves. Yet it's those that standards are villified for doing the right thing or at least trying.
