Teachers' dress code

March 19, 2009 - Heather Ziegler
There is some merit to the idea of introducing dress codes for teachers, after all they have them for students. It's just a shame that such a thing has to be legislated. I have more of a problem with higher education...based on the manner in which some young people enter this office seeking a job, it's a wonder they can get a job anywhere. I think colleges and high schools owe it to their students to teach them about appropriate professional appearance including how to dress (no flip flops, get a hair cut or at least wash you hair and beard, tuck in your shirt, leave the cleavage for clubbing, and lose the chewing gum). If you don't respect your own appearance no one will respect you in the business world. Yes it does matter. Teachers may not make huge salaries in this state, but clean, respectible clothing does not have to be expensive. Just ask any journalist.
