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 statement later claims that the comments were simply a failed attempt at humor.
