Teachers at a high school in Japan have issued a set of posters to tell schoolgirls how to wear their skirts. The teachers think the girls are wearing them too short, so the teachers hired an artist to illustrate how the skirts should be worn and how wearing them too short can reflect poorly on the student.

News outlets went nuts on the "Proper dress all at once together campaign," and reporters went out with tape measures to gauge the length of the skirts worn by schoolgirls. Stats for Viral Hemline Controversy Trending: Older & Average
