jQuery Validation plugin not validating textarea field

I’m using the jQuery validation plugin I can’t get it to validate the text area field:

Here is my html

<div class="form-group">
        <label for="description" class="control-label">Description of Your Request</label>
        <textarea class="form-control" rows="3" id="description" name="description" class="required"></textarea> 

Here is the Jquery:

    rules: {
        "description": {
    submitHandler: function() {

    }// end submitHandler
});// end validation/form processing

here is a demo:

any idea?

If the issue is just that the textarea doesn’t turn red then that would seem to be because you don’t have any css to make it happen.


textarea.error{ border: 1px solid #FF0000 !important;}
