A North Texas high school principal is apologizing for a dress code video.

In the video, the girls at Marcus High School in Flower Mound are taken to a dress code violators room.

School officials say they thought a fashion show would demonstrate what to wear -- but they say the video absolutely missed the mark.

Critics say it's sexist and sends the wrong message.

"We should be more educated on women's rights, we should be more educated on sexualization and rape culture because that's what this really boils down to is that somewhere, a group of people agreed that this was OK to show and there wasn't one person who said, you know maybe we shouldn't do this," said Catherine Moring, a Marcus High School senior.

In a letter to parents, Principal Will Skelton explained that "a fashion show that demonstrates what to wear, and what not to wear didn't happen. We believed a video would be a good way to replace the fashion show, but this video absolutely missed the mark."
