It goes on to state, “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.”

Female teachers are also required to wear a bra.

Yes.  If the above rule is being met what business is it of anybody if someone is wearing underwear or not?  And how do the propose to check/enforce?  Surprise underwear checks?  No way this stands a union challenge.

Frankly, I agree with you.

For the ladies, what kind or brand of bras are they going to legislate?

And you are correct about weird snap inspections, is the superintendent or his/her deputy going to pinch the back of every female and snap her bra?

You can bet that if the superintendent/deputy is male, inspections will be a regular occurrence  :D

Quite frankly, there's really nothing in those rules to which I would personally object. It's really sad that such rules have to be spelled out. I rather suspect that the real objection is not against the rules themselves but against the very idea that "someone is telling moi how to dress. How dare they!" There was once a time when people knew how to dress tastefully. When I was in teacher training in the mid-70s, men had to wear ties and women had to wear skirts/dresses. (In real life, that practice was already on its way out.)

Where I was teaching at the community college, there were a bunch of autistic boys and young men who would suddenly reach down into a teacher's blouse and grab her breasts if the blouses were low cut. Thus, teachers were encouraged to wear longer skirts or slacks with vests on top of their modest blouses.

Autism/Aspergers was a blessing in that sense.

Years ago I had an art teacher who didn't have a belt, never pulled her pants up and apparently didn't have any underwear. I remember how she picked up a dropped pencil in front of my desk. A horrid sight if ever there was one.

Don't they teach custody of the eyes anymore?   ::)

I know what you mean as I took a ceramics class where my professor had trouble keeping his pants up. He wore those low cut jeans and every time he would bend over or even sit at the wheel, we would have to avert our eyes from his backside.

I read in the news about female teachers on trial for having sex with their male underage high school pupils. For well endowed female teachers to come to class with see through blouses, basically exposing their breasts, could be sending the wrong message to the underage boys in her class.

Boys will always like big breasts, but a teacher still needs the proper morals and common sense that you do NOT have sex with students.  No excuse, regardless of what a teacher wears.

Actually it doesn't, depending on the age of the student; it makes her a statutory rapist.  Pedophile is a psychological term, not a legal one.

Duchess of Cambridge made the news for her lack of appropriate underwear.
It is sad that this type of sleazy gossip is called news.

Quote
To wear or not wear underclothes is not a feminist argument, nor is there one right answer to the questions being asked about the necessity of wearing boob or bottom protection. To wear or not wear some form of cover-up is a choice made by an individual, usually without much contemplation or strategizing, because sometimes you feel like it, and sometimes you don’t. It’s just not that complicated.

What one wears in the bedroom is different from what one wears in the streets. However, what one wears in the bedroom could be worn in the streets without questions if a 9.0 earthquake or fire were to happen.

Even still, teachers and people who work around children, especially the autistic, need to dress appropriately, and slacks would be a better option.

Only if the teacher's primary or exclusive sexual interest is for individuals around 16.

Eros has always been part of the teacher-student relationship; from the Athenians to Abelard and Heloise to, apparently, some of our contemporary teachers. It would seem that there are some precedents.

That being said, all teachers who engage in that kind of activity should receive the treatment Abelard got.

In 7th I was attracted to the 22 year old substitute teacher. Needless to say, it went so far that I actually stole my mother's wedding ring and asked this woman to marry me, the whole class erupting into laughter. It made me a celebrity for the rest of Jr. High :) it wasn't so much that she dressed inappropriately as much as it was that I was simply an animal. I wonder if this is the case with other students.
Until I see the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, I will not believe.

You you guys saying pedophile by "law" as in state law or moral law?

If it was a 22 year old teacher and 16 year old student, some people (including myself) - don't exactly think of that is pedophilia.
if you got caught, you would find out what the state law was.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Yes.  If the above rule is being met what business is it of anybody if someone is wearing underwear or not?  And how do the propose to check/enforce?  Surprise underwear checks?  No way this stands a union challenge.

Frankly, I agree with you.

For the ladies, what kind or brand of bras are they going to legislate?

And you are correct about weird snap inspections, is the superintendent or his/her deputy going to pinch the back of every female and snap her bra?

It goes on to state, “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.”

Female teachers are also required to wear a bra.

http://www.kirotv.com/news/news/education/teachers-upset-new-dress-code-requiring-underwear/nf77z/

Would you fight against this rule?

I would not fight at all.  There is NO WAY I'd send my children to public school.  If teachers are seriously upset about having to dress "modestly" in front of students, I think there are many more things deep down that are wrong.
Amen!

You can bet that if the superintendent/deputy is male, inspections will be a regular occurrence  :D

I really hope you're being deliberately obtuse and that you dont actually fail to understand the difference between pædophilia and statutory rape.

Avocados on a quinoa salad are delightful.  Bacon just makes it better.

You guys are making me hungry. I used to buy the Petit Pain Pascal at Trader Joes, but they are getting new vendors: local bakeries in each area to supply these marvelous little loaves of organic whole wheat bread (if vendors can be found).

I like to dress my sandwiches with avocadoes.

BLT = Butter, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwiches. Yum.
