Michigan School To Use "Modesty Ponchos" At Prom

posted by Pat McMahon -

A Michigan high school is causing a stir across the internet after pictures of their "prom policy" surfaced on Twitter. For years, administrators at Divine Child High School have upheld a strict dress code for prom season- no cleavage, no exposed backs, and no super-short dresses- which are typical guidelines for many high schools across the country. The reason for the national outcry, however, centers around Divine Child's punishment for breaking the dress code: "modesty ponchos".

According to students at the school, they were given the option of either going home or wearing one of the ponchos- which are "available in short and long styles". The teacher behind the idea claims that the idea was intended as a "light-hearted deterrant", and that having ponchos would influence students to "focus on the inner beauty of people".
