Andrea Lucero, the mother of Las Vegas City Schools students, says the district pays more attention to the dress code than education.
She said one of her daughters spent a month in all-day detention at Memorial Middle School because of a lip ring. She said the daughter decided to keep her ring as a matter of principle; otherwise, Lucero said, the piercing would have closed up.
“The dress code is ridiculous,” she said. “My daughter has been treated like a common criminal. It’s not like she beat someone up or brought drugs to school.”
