FLORIDA student Lizzy Martinez, 17, said she was humiliated after being called to the dean's office and told her that her lack of support attracted glances from other students.
The teenager recounted her humiliating experience this week at Branden River High School, the New York Post reported
"She told me that I had to put a shirt under my long-sleeved shirt to try to squeeze my breasts, to shake them, "Mrs. Martinez told the Bradenton Herald. "And then he asked me to move."
But the second layer was not to the dean's taste, Ms. Martinez said, and they took her to the infirmary, where they gave her bandages to cover each nipple. .
The teenager said the incident made her feel so uncomfortable that she started crying and left school early.
His mother, Kari Knop, said she was appalled at how the school handled the situation. In the car, Ms. Martinez told her mother that they gave her bandages to hide her nipples, which caused her mother to hit the vehicle's brakes.
"I stopped and looked at her, and said," Oh, my God, you have to be kidding, "said Mrs. Knop.
Frustrated, she returned to her daughter's school on Wednesday to meet with administrators on the subject.
"We should not treat a girl like" Ms. Knop said that
also spoke by phone with the superintendent of Manatee County Schools, Diana Greene, who suggested, as did others administrators, that the adolescent's "outstanding" nipples had been genetically distributed, distracting the students.
School officials admitted in a statement that the situation should have been handled differently.
"This matter was brought to the attention of the Superintendent's Office for review, "the district's general counsel, Mitchell Tei telbaum, said in a prepared statement.
" It is indisputable that this matter should have been handled by different school level and corrective measures have been taken to prevent a recurrence in the way these issues will be addressed in the future. "
