The school district in Little Rock, Arkansas 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.
“Foundational garments shall be worn and not visible with respect to color, style, and 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.”
T-shirts, patches and other clothing containing slogans for beer, alcohol, drugs, gangs or sex will also be prohibited. Other verboten garments will include cut-off jeans with ragged edges, cut-out dresses and spaghetti-straps if teachers aren’t wearing at least two layers.
Flip-flops will be banned. “Tattoos must be covered if at all possible.” No jogging suits, either (though gym and dance teachers do get a pass on this one).
Organized labor vocally opposes the new universal underwear requirement and the rest of the non-draconian dress code.
