KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Several parents commented on social media sparking a plethora of comments.

The conversation had to do with leggings, and whether or not students should be allowed to wear leggings to school.

It all came after the East Noble Superintendent Ann Linson weighed in on the fashion choice in a newsletter.

Linson, declined Fort Wayne’s NBC request for an interview.

In a part of Linson’s response online, that has since been deleted, she wrote “Interesting such a small message has attracted attention from several people. More students than adults.”

The post continued by writing, “No one needs to see what color or design underwear you are wearing and no one needs to see every dimple, curve, bump, contour of that part of your body.”

Some parents said the problem is the sexualization of leggings, and others said this shouldn’t be a topic of discussion at all.

Tasha Jarman, a parent with kids in the East Noble School Corporation said, “It’s crazy that we are focused on issues like this. There are so much bigger issues, we have people in the community who are going hungry. We have people in the community who are dealing with suicide. We have way bigger fish to fry.”

Other parents like Amanda Hohn agreed with the superintendent and said, “Leggings are appropriate as long as you cover your behind. They are not appropriate when you don’t.”

Linson said she is okay with kids wearing leggings as long as their backside and front are covered.
