Morgan Bentley was sent home from class because her pants were deemed to be too tight – and the 12-year-old’s parents were outraged. So when the school responsible went on to defend its decision, Morgan’s mother decided to fight back, responding in a way that may just strike a chord with moms and dads everywhere.
Back in 2015 Morgan lived in Franklin Township, Indiana, with mom Traci and dad Rodney. At that time, like many 12-year-olds in the U.S., Morgan attended her local middle school. But though the school year may have progressed relatively straightforwardly for the young girl at first, in November 2015 she would find herself at the center of a dispute.
That controversy began when Morgan found herself called to a meeting because of her clothes. More specifically, it was all down to the style of pants that she had been wearing to class from her first days at Franklin Township Middle School West. She was typically clad in skinny jeans, simply because these were the best option for her slender frame.
