Two Bronx Prep students who violate dress code get an unusual punishment
Two Bronx girls reportedly had to wear skirts made of trash bags to class as a punishment for coming to school in jeans rather than their uniforms. According to the Daily News, the sixth-graders at the Bronx Preparatory Charter School were made to wear the bags by Principal Marina Bernard Damiba. Joy Vasquez, whose 12-year-old daughter, was one of the girls who wore the skirts, at first said the punishment was "really wrong." But after meeting with Damiba, she said her daughter "got a lesson out of it." Students at the school are required to wear a polo shirt with the school's logo and khaki, black, gray or navy blue pants or skirts that are at least knee-length.
