Most schools have a rule about clothes. They work like this: Dressing in a manner that proves to be disruptive to the educational environment, you must either change your clothes of go home. Should the same rule apply to a teacher? And most importantly – who gets to decided what does dressing in a way that is “disruptive” to an educational environment look like?
A substitute teacher in Washington state who has subbed 19 times at 13 different schools this year has managed to bring home extra homework for his students this year, “Mommy, Daddy why does the teacher I had today, who is man, dress like woman?” Of the questions parents expect to get about homework, I bet this is not one they find on their list.

What do you think:
1. If its acceptable for a man to dress as woman at school, what could possibly be unacceptable for school dress? If a teacher was a nudist, why not let them follow their convictions and not wear clothes at all?
2. If you were a parent in this school district and the school asked if it would be ok to have a cross-dressing teacher, teach your childs class, what would you tell them?
3. I have to admit that, although nothing really shocks me anymore, of all the challenges our current education system is faced with – this did catch me as being a bit off the wall. Are you surprised to hear about this?
