Should Parents Have a Dress Code for School? One Lawmaker Thinks They Do
A Tennessee lawmaker feels that parents need to follow a dress code, when dropping their kids off at school. He has already begun writing the legislation, to ban certain clothing and behaviors.
State Representative Antonio Parkinson (D - Memphis) says that he has received numerous complaints about how parents dress and act at school.
"There was a parent that came into the school and the parent was in their lingerie and there were body parts exposed and this was an elementary school and that’s a real issue. We’ve seen where you have adults fighting on school campuses, we’ve seen where adults and children are fighting each other on school campuses,” Parkinson said.
If passed, the bill would include the dress code, rules against fighting, and being at school while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
