Default Arkansas school district mandates underwear for teachers

By MYFOXATLANTA STAFF


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -
The school district in Arkansas's capital city is now requiring teachers to wear underwear and cover tattoos.

The Daily Caller reports that the news dress code will also make female teachers wear bras. The superintendent of the Little Rock School District announced the changes in an August 29th letter to staff.

"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."

Tattoos also much be covered when possible and bans flip-flops. The Arkansas Times posted the full letter on their website outlining the new dress policy.

The Arkansas Times also reports that the local teachers' union attempted to soften the new rules, but was met with resistance.

The superintendent says the new rules won't go into effect until the start of the 2014-15 school year.

Modesty is good for the school environment. I like the ban on flip-flops too. Teacher dress has become too casual in the recent years

I'd say professional dress across the board has become too casual. And I'm definitely a fan of comfort. I would dress down every day if I could. But some things people try to pass off as business casual are not at all so.

I fail to see how flip flops are a problem

If society, in general, is more accepting of something (not referring to sexually provocative clothing here) then what is the problem with it? I get the fact that business casual has been redefined, but so what? What's the harm in that?

It is really just a thing of degree though isn't it? You are against some types of clothing but are happy to support your mandatory brown shirts. Personally I don't care what people wear. I wish others had the same attitude.

Against? Do I want them burned? No. Am I going to throw acid in their faces if I see someone's ankles or face? Of course not.

I don't get to make the rules, all I said is that I agree with the fact that modesty in schools is a good thing. Of course, I am speaking from inside the profession, not outside looking in.

If you truly don't care, that would be apathy and it wouldn't matter what other people thought...extending your logic to its conclusion, but you seemed more concerned with what other people think about this as opposed to what people wear.

Should modesty be a choice, or mandatory?
Also, one person's modesty is another person's scandal. I went to a very conservative Christian school when I was young that had a dress code that said boys could wear jeans...but they couldn't be blue. True story.

Ok. You are getting into a whole other issue there.

If you choose a job that has a dress code, man up or choose another place to work. If your work implements a new dress code, either you want to work there or you don't. I'm not getting into all the undergarments discussion because how in the world would you actually govern that?

I teach in Richland 1, and some of the teachers I work with don't understand how to dress as a professional. There are women that wear things you see in the club to teach in.

That's completely beside the point. Using your logic, people should be allowed to wear (or not wear in this case) whatever they want to work just because it would be difficult to find another job. The point is if an employer has or makes a dress code and you're an employee, you have to follow the code or leave the company.
