Ok it took a pannle to figure this out..... Report: Teacher went too far by checking students' underwear Poway, California-AP -- A Southern California high school vice principal is waiting to hear what her penalty will be -- for lifting girls' skirts to check what kind of underwear they had on. The school district in Poway, California says Rita Wilson used poor judgment and "went far beyond the grounds of propriety." She conducted the skirt checks at a school dance in April, turning away any girl who was wearing thong underwear. Students said Wilson lifted girls' skirts -- in front of male students and adults. Wilson's lawyer says the vice principal did the skirt lifting because she cared about student safety. The school district has been investigating for a month. It's expected to release its full report today. Copyright 2002 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
