Girls Booted From Prom for Revealing Dresses

Dozens of girls were turned away from a prom at a Louisiana high school this weekend because a teacher thought their dresses were too revealing.

Families of the girls say the teacher cited alleged violations of the school dress code. Most of the offending garb apparently involved excessive display of cleavage.

One prom-goer thinks his date was turned away because of how she's built. He calls that "discrimination" and thinks that's "wrong."

Jefferson Parish school district officials are backing the teacher. They say she was simply enforcing a dress code that's been in effect for years.

They add that some of the girls were admitted after they fixed their dresses.
