    A group of parents at a Northwest Side school say their daughters were publicly humiliated by their principal on the last day of school.

    According to the Chicago Sun-Times, it happened at an awards ceremony when Decatur Classical School principal Susan J. Kukielka asked seven girls to stand up, and said they were not girls of distinction because their shots were too short.

    Aaron Greven said her 10-year-old daughter was one of the girls who was publicly "shamed," and later cried about it when she got home.

    There is no official dress code at the school, but students have been told that their shorts should not be higher than the fingertips when the arms are placed straight down the sides of the body.

    Kukielka has sent letters of apology for her disciplinary actions.

    CPS officials are reportedly investigation the incident.

    Decatur is a selective-enrollment kindergarten through sixth-grade school.
