Shanah Drummond is a mother from Missouri, who triggered a heated debate on the internet with the publication of a video. The woman showed the moment when she went to her daughter's school to protest against action that had been taken regarding her young daughter.
Apparently, the girl had gone to class wearing ripped jeans - which the school deemed as inappropriate attire. Unable to find a spare pair of jeans for the girl, the school authorities used red tape to cover the holes in the girl's torn jeans. This action infuriated Shanah.
Shanah got a message from her daughter about what had happened and immediately went to school. When she got to the school, Shanah asked the authorities if taking action like this was absolutely necessary.
“Am I wrong thinking that the school shouldn't have put duct tape on my daughter's jeans? I just think it would have been much or appropriate to contact me and ask me to bring my daughter another pair of pants,” Shanah stated.
Many users came out in support of Shanah and stated that the school should have called her before putting "patches" on her daughter's jeans. On the other hand, there are those who supported the school, saying that dress codes must be followed, and it is up to parents to ensure that their children dress properly for school.
Shanah pointing out how the tape used could have affected her daughter's skin and the school had not taken this into consideration at all.
