High School Implements Dress Code for Parents
There's a school in Houston that just implemented a dress code. Which wouldn't be news, except that it's a dress code for the parents.
Carlotta Outley Brown is the principal at James Madison High School in Houston, and she sent out a letter earlier this month to the parents telling them they need to start dressing more appropriately when they're dropping off or picking up their kids.
It includes a ban on:
- Hair rollers
- Visible underwear
- Jeans with rips on the butt
- Very low cut tops
- Sagging pants
- Short shorts.
Carlotta says she's implementing the policy, quote, "to prepare our children and let them know daily, the appropriate attire they are supposed to wear when entering a building, going somewhere, [or] applying for a job."
But some of the parents are unhappy, and so is the Houston Federation of Teachers.
A spokesperson says, "Having body parts exposed is one thing. Turning someone away because their hair's in rollers is a little ridiculous. Some of that stuff seems a little classist."
