Arkansas school's dress code called "sexist"

SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. - Many parents are calling a dress code presentation at one Arkansas school sexist.

Teachers at a local school told girls to dress modestly. They said low cut shirts or panty lines could cause a reaction from boys.

Many parents were upset with this instruction.

They said it sets a double standard because it's puts the burden on the girls.

"They talked about panty lines and bra straps and how some men would stumble on that and it would be a distraction," parent Jennifer Wilmoth said.

The school's principal said that the intentions of the seminar were good and that boys are responsible for their actions.
