After Stephanie Milligan fell down a flight of stairs and injured her back, her doctor recommended she wear loose clothing while recuperating. He even sent not one but two notes to school saying she needed to wear loose clothing. Milligan attends Ohio's Lakewood High School, where the dress code bars "saggy, baggy" clothing. And Principal William Wagner says he doesn't care what her doctor says, Milligan can't wear sweat pants. "I don't write prescriptions for them and they should not write prescriptions to circumvent our dress code," said Wagner. "They don't understand what the dress code is all about or how it is imposed."
