Houston High School Dress Code For Parents Spark Controversy
Dress codes for school are usually common now days, but having a dress code for parents is out of the ordinary for one Houston High School.
In a letter to parents earlier this month parents won't be allowed to wear the following
- Hair Rollers
- Sagging Pants or Shorts
- Revealing Tops
- Undershirts (Men)
- Torn Jeans that reveal a lot of skin
- Shower Caps and Bonnets
The President of the Houston Federal of Teachers, Zeph Capo called the dress code relating to women's hair as "classist" and "belittling" per the Houston Chronicle.
I'm sorry, this principal may have plenty of money and time to go to the hairdresser weekly and have her stuff done. Who are you to judge others who may not have the same opportunities that you do? Having a wrap on your head is not offensive.
The dress code went into effect over a parent attempting to enroll her daughter at Madison High School had been turned away because of how she was dressed.
The mother, who was wearing a T-shirt dress and headscarf, said the school called police to remove her from the property.
What do you think of her explanation that it's necessary to establish high standards for students?
