Assistant principal says female students' clothes cause bad grades in males
Students Clements High School got a very unwelcoming back-to-school message from their assistant principal.
Phil Morgante, an administrator in Fort Bend County, Texas, said female students are the reason why their male peers are making bad grades.
"Ladies, I know you've been working on your abs since the Olympics, right? But your shirts can't be up here. It's gotta cover the whole gut... Ladies, I blame you all for boys' low grades because of tight clothing," he said, according to Click 2 Houston.
Students were predictably upset about the comments.
"Like we should be able to wear leggings without feeling like it's a problem because guys will be staring at us and that's just how we felt," Quean Foster told Click 2 Houston.
Other students have been speaking out on Twitter.
The school has since released a statement, according to The Odyssey Online.
"During assemblies last week, when speaking about the dress code, a Clements High School administrator made comments that were inappropriate and offensive to students."
The statement later claims that the comments were simply a failed attempt at humor.
