When I sat down to consider this week's topics, one of the things I intended to address was a recent WAFF48 story about teacher dress codes. The topic of school dress codes has become a hot button issue in recent years, mostly revolving around students wearing saggy pants or shirts with inflammatory slogans. But as I read some of the comments on our Facebook page, the one thing that really seemed to strike a chord with people was whether or not teachers should be allowed to wear jeans. A lot of teachers logged on to leave their thoughts, but there was by no means a consensus. Some felt wearing jeans made it easier to work with and relate to the students, while others argued jeans give an unprofessional image. I'd like to keep this discussion going. Teachers: do you think jeans are ever appropriate work attire in the classroom? And parents: how much consideration do you give to how your child's teacher dresses? Post your comments in the My Take section of WAFF.com. I'll be reading some of them in a future editorial. I'm Vanessa Oubre and that's my take. What's yours?
