Little Rock school district will now make teachers wear underwear
Daily Caller ^ | September 6, 2013

Posted on 09/07/2013 5:27:09 AM PDT by Zakeet

The school district in Little Rock, Ark. has announced plans for a dress code that will require teachers to wear underwear. Every single day. Female teachers will have to wear bras, too.

An Aug. 29 letter from the Little Rock School District’s Office of the Superintendent to all employees explains that the dress code will officially go into effect in the fall of 2014.

“Foundational garments shall be worn and not visible with respect to color, style, and/or fabric,” the letter reads. “No see-through or sheer clothing shall be allowed, and no skin shall be visible between pants/trousers, skirts, and shirts/blouses at any time.”

T-shirts, patches and other clothing containing slogans for beer, alcohol, drugs, gangs or sex will also be prohibited. Other verboten garments will include cut-off jeans with ragged edges, cut-out dresses and spaghetti-straps if teachers aren’t wearing at least two layers.

Flip-flops will be banned. “Tattoos must be covered if at all possible.” No jogging suits, either (though gym and dance teachers do get a pass on this one).

And the very worst of all: No spandex.

Organized labor vocally opposes the new universal underwear requirement and the rest of the non-draconian dress code.

It's not fair to force teachers to look halfway presentable while they work for almost no pay and teach about the evils of guns and the injustice done to Trayvon!

the teachers should dress professionally, I was livid when one of the middle aged sex pot first grade teachers at our grade school was wearing shorts and sandals. The other first grade teacher always wore skirts and blouse and a blazer and hose and looked very pulled together.

And the really sad part about this whole thing.....
the fact that a dress code has to be put into
writing and enforced. Teachers want to be
treated like professionals but don’t want to
act like professionals.

“I can’t go commando?”

The amazing thing about people going commando is it’s NEVER somebody you’d like to see. So, here’s a rule of thumb. If you think it would make you look more attractive to show more body, the opposite is likely true. (See the Geraldo selfie. Putin may look good for his age, but not “good” in general.)

If the rules are tagged with "bras too" then the 'underwear' can only mean panties ....Which begs the question ... WHY would a woman not wear panties ?

If they're in pants it's unclean and if in skirt or dress ...

What're y'thinkin', teach ?

That sounded like the standard STUDENT dress code when I was a kid. Obviously, the teachers need to held to the same standards as students (at a minimum).

I’ll take the new teachers, up to about 30-35. You can take the senior teachers.

This requirement will help with unemployment:
Every school will have to hire an underwear inspector who will have a booth at the teacher entrance to make sure they are wearing approved garments. And since we cannot discriminate, it could be either sex, any race, any sexual orientation, any religion....MUST, of course not discriminate against ex-cons. Yea, this is a great idea! <S

At a school where I taught, we had teachers that would schlep in wearing bedroom slippers, sweat pants, unshaven looking like they had just rolled out of bed.

Our union steward wore a jacket advertising the local bar.

Yes, we looked like union labor, not professionals.

It’s usually “undergarments.” 99% of the time the issues are with employees going braless.

Some less endowed women CAN get away with it. Until the AC gets turned on.

At least that’s what it was when my company started the dress code. And it was fun starting the enforcement process.

yes, they do. I was just this Thursday told by a friend that teaches guitar at the school of rock about a related situation. One of his students came into his lesson and when asked “how’s it going?”, he replied; man school sucks. He proceeded to relay that he wore a Budweiser shirt to school, my friend stated it was a very subdued Budweiser shirt to - not obvious at first glance what the advertisement was for.

Long story short, they pulled the kid into the office, restrained him for a few hours while they evaluated him for drug/alcohol use.

That’s what lack of communication and zero tolerance gets you in at least one MN school (I’m pretty sure this was in Minneapolis or a close suburb).

I don’t think skirts and hose are necessary for children 3rd grade and under as some teachers sit on the floor with the children, clean paint, and do other things that are a little more physical.

A nice pair of khaki pants and tucked in collared shirts looked professional on teachers when I was in school and still looks professional, especially polo shirts with the school’s logo.

We used to a have a charming young lady working the front counter. When the AC went on, for half our customers it became a distraction. The other half complained.

When I was in high school Anheuser-Bush came up with the bright idea of having knit Cosby sweaters with their can images on the front and back.

I think at least one person in every school around me attempted a full day wearing it or having it on at a dance or football game.

Alcohol lectures for everyone followed soon after.

Years ago there was a “braless bandit” who pulled several successful bank robberies.

No one could describe her face.

Underwear inspector is Laz’s dream job. I bet he will work for free. I volunteer myself to be his assistant but have the prerogative to reject certain teachers for inspection and will defer those to Laz.

underwear is overrated.

it doesn’t specify what type of underware...

Whaletales and cupless are obviously on the way.

You know...it's been a while (35 years)since I attended public school...

Seems most of my male teachers wore at least a button down dress shirt with a tie and slacks and in many cases a sports jacket...

Women teachers universally wore a dress or a matching pant suit...except for the gay gym teachers who wore gym suits...

Have we really fallen that far down the rabbit hole to expect teachers to dress like adults...
