    This is pretty standard common sense stuff. It doesn't suprise me that the union idiot's have a problem with it. Anythying to give them an excuse to b*** and try to swindle more cash.

    A dress code for the kids but the teachers don't want that restriction. Take a look at some old year books and look at how kids and teachers were dressed.

    When I started teaching in '67, we were expected/told that a tie and jacket. The women were expected to wear skirts, no pants or pantsuits.

    When I retired at the end of the 2011-2012 school year, guys wore Polo or button shirts without ties. Women typically wear slacks. Jeans and Tees are permitted on Friday if the Tee is in school colors, preferably school spirit oriented. Some Fridays we could wear college Tees. People tended to get excited on the Friday before "The Game" when I wore or displayed something about U of M while everyone else was in OSU red and gray.

    Even the principal and Supertindent do not dress 'professionally' unless they have a meeting. We have found the community feels we are more approachable this way. The nearby city, by contrast, requires the administrators to wear a DIFFERENT suit each day of the week, but on select Fridays they can wear a sport coat.

    We never had any issue with the underwear thing, but one of our high school English teachers, male, did get criticized for wearing jeans and Tees too much. He often looked like a slob. He had a house fire and lost most of his clothes, and we never knew it from any change in his wardrobe.

    The slacks for women and no jackets for men make teaching better, allowing more freedom of movement, for one thing. If you ever spent a day in a room with a south facing glass wall on the third floor of a non A/C building, filled with hot sweaty bodies, some of whom are in serious need of a shower, you would appreciate not wearing a tie.

    IMO, no teacher should strive to be a fashion statement. Dress should be conservative, but not necessarily like in a business office in a big city. Even our city and county employees don't dress up to that level most of the time. Especially those like the woman who taught in our building who was a free swinging cheerleader in her younger days, but those days were long ago. Unfortunately, she still subs and still thinks she's 22 instead of three times that. She's overweight, has skin about 4 sizes too big, has had botox so often her lips are wrinkled, hair is orange, and she basically looks like a walking wrinkle with freckles. But she thinks she's witty, attractive, and popular.

    Teachers should dress as professionals. That doesnt mean a jacket and tie, at least wear jeans and a button down shirt. Women as well should at least be tactful in how they dress. They deal with children and parent all day. If my children's teacher can't take the time to dress in a respectful manner then how are their teaching habbits?

    I've always thought that a certain amount of decorum should be maintained anyplace one expects to maintain even a small amount of influence or control. The schools gave that up years ago and began dressing down seemingly to the lowest common denominator to where it is often times difficult to differentiate them from those bodies housing the fertile minds that they are tasked with developing, and now we need to brake that runaway downhill train by insisting that one wear underwear.

    Im assuming in this case ''underwear'' means bras too....as in ''under garments''


    Thats probably what caused this ruling....to many ''cold mornings''

    Yes, there were many other things mentioned in the article for the new dress code, like exposed midriffs, spandex, etc.

    My 7th grade homeroom teacher was small chested, and never wore bras--she would lean over at her desk and everyone got a look. I didn't realize until this article what was going on--in light of other news stories--and why she had the boys sit in front.

    That's sad, but it's nothing new--that would have been in '71

    Oh the memories. We had one 8th grade teacher that was short and wore short skirts and had to really stretch to reach the top of the blackboard.:love:
