School posters instructing students on ‘good girl’ prom dresses lands administrators in hot water

Fliers posted in a Florida college preparatory school that depicted proper prom attire have caused a stir on social media.

The “good” dress covered the entire wearer and the caption on top read “Going to Stanton Prom?” while under the dress it read, “Yes you are. Good girl.”

The caption on the “bad,” much more revealing dresses read, “No you are not!”

The idea behind the posters could have easily been a lighthearted way to grab student’s attention. unfortunately, for school administrators it grabbed the wrong kind of attention.

Social media users accused the school of being sexist and condescending because of the phrase “good girl” and the idea that the school could tell students what they are allowed to wear.

Despite the fact that dress codes at school dances are as old as school dances themselves, asking for classy decorum is now sexist.

Oh, and it’s also racist.

The school has since apologized for hanging the posters.

“The display of prom dress photos pertaining to recommend attire at Stanton College Preparatory School is not an approved policy by the school or Duval County Public Schools,” it said in a statement to Fox 30. “The displayed images were immediately removed by school leadership on Monday. Both students and staff have been informed this was not acceptable or appropriate guidance for prom dress attire.”
