Teachers upset with new dress code requiring underwear

Slogans for sex, drugs, alcohol also a no-no

The rule begins by saying, “Foundational garments shall be worn and not visible with respect to color, style, and/or fabric.”

It goes on to state, “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.”

Female teachers are also required to wear a bra.

The letter describing the change was sent to teachers in Little Rock, Arkansas, last year, but the new standard takes effect this fall. With that deadline closing in, teachers are looking at ways to fight the ruling.

Outer garments also have to meet new requirements. Disallowed are slogans for beer, drugs, gangs, sex, or alcohol.

No more flip-flops, spandex is out, and “tattoos must be covered, if at all possible.”

The Teachers who are most upset have demanded their union to work at trying to loosen the new rules.
