Erica DeRamus was suspended from her Oxford, Alabama high school for arriving at the senior prom in an outfit that violated the dress code. DeRamus was told her dress was too short and too revealing up top, but her mom said she wouldn't have bought it if she thought there was too much cleavage. Perhaps most shocking is that as punishment, DeRamus had to choose between suspension and being paddled...and of the 18 students who violated the dress code, DeRamus was the only one who chose suspension. The other 17 picked paddling.
