A Henry County woman is furious after being called out for sending her six-year-old kindergartener to school in what officials say was inappropriate.
Audrey Hightower tells Channel 2 Action News an assistant principal from Tussahaw Elementary called her on Tuesday complaining of her daughter’s Little Kitty dress saying it was too short or may be showing too much skin.
Because Hightower's car was broken down, a friend went to the school only to find that Cherish Marshall had on someone else's jeans.
"You didn't get my permission to put this child in somebody else's clothes. Number two, you're judging her by saying it's inappropriate what she's got on. What she had on, I don't think nothing was wrong with it. That's why I'm very upset," said Hightower.
A statement from the school said the clothing was deemed inappropriate based on the way it was being worn and it was becoming a distraction.
Hightower says this is not the first time her daughter has worn the outfit.
"She already wore that little skirt last week with a top that goes with that, you know. She already wore that before. So, that's why I'm saying why was it last week it was okay for her to wear it, but this week we got a problem," said Hightower.
