They're doing it for their own good... right?

She explained to the station that her teacher commented on her clothes as she was leaving her classroom.

"(The teacher) told me I was 'letting them hang out for the whole world to see,'" she said.

"I went to the bathroom and I came back and I said, 'You need to stop sexualizing 14-year-old girls.' I grabbed my stuff and I removed myself from the situation."

Wagner then went to her school office where she asked to call her parents...


However, her call was not allowed.

Wagner then got caught up in a heated exchange with officials at her school.


And as a result, was issued a ten-day suspension.

Wagners mom, Sarah, also spoke with News4Jax and said: "So, I don't think it's OK for her to talk to teachers that way, but I understand why she was angry."

"She was basically sexually harassed by her teacher. … The teacher did apologize, she did understand what she did was wrong."

Wagner also added that she believes there's a double standard when it comes to enforcing the dress code.

"I believe that teachers are targeting women with mature bodies, women in general, absolutely. So just because I have a little bit of breasts, I get targeted," she said.

Wagner was also told that her undergarments were visible, something she claims is not possible due to the cardigan she was wearing.
