Arkansas school district mandates underwear for teachers

Posted: Updated:

The school district in Arkansas's capital city is now requiring teachers to wear underwear and cover tattoos.

The Daily Caller reports that the news dress code will also make female teachers wear bras. The superintendent of the Little Rock School District announced the changes in an August 29th letter to staff.

"Foundational garments shall be worn and not visible with respect to color, style, and/or 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."

Tattoos also much be covered when possible and bans flip-flops. The Arkansas Times posted the full letter on their website outlining the new dress policy.

The Arkansas Times also reports that the local teachers' union attempted to soften the new rules, but was met with resistance.

The superintendent says the new rules won't go into effect until the start of the 2014-15 school year.
