Should There Be A Dress Code For Educators?

The Wichita School District is one of the growing number of school districts cracking down on what teachers wear to school.  The district will not allow teachers to wear cutoff shorts, pajama pants or flip flops.  A school district in Phoenix is requiring teachers to cover up tattoos and excessive body piercings.  Female teachers in Peoria and the Litchfield school districts indicate that tank-top straps cannot be less than 2 inches wide.

What are your feelings?

I believe that if teachers wish to be treated as professionals they need to dress as professionals.  I would feel uncomfortable if I went to see a doctor who was wearing flip-flops, tattoos, excessive body piercings and cutoff shorts.
