At what point in time did it become necessary to tell teachers to wear underwear? [Darleen Click]
Did Little Rock experience a rash of Sharon Stone wannabes?
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.”
Of course, union members are not happy.
Organized labor vocally opposes the new universal underwear requirement and the rest of the non-draconian dress code. [...]
In the letter, Koehler explains her fear that “if an employee refuses to go home and change they can be considered insubordinate and risk losing their job based on an opinion.”
