Parents upset by dress code for NJ school dance

Some parents are upset that a principal has banned girls from wearing strapless dresses to an eighth grade dance.

Mother Charlotte Nijenhuis tells the Courier News of Bridgewater she spoke to the Readington Middle School principal, who told her such dresses distract boys.

Nijenhuis says it's neither a woman's nor a girl's responsibility to control a man's or boy's behavior.

Melissa May says she would not allow her daughter to wear something that she felt was inappropriate.

The parents plan to take their dress code protest to the school board on Tuesday night.
