    A friend is going to work in a conservative religious school: no elbows or collarbones visible.

    I have always thought teachers' dress requirements should generally meet those of the students.

    Teachers should be models of appropriate dress and behavior, as well as instructors.

    The poll is easy: yes or no. Let's not hear any snowflake whining. Give us your opinion in a sensible manner.

    I vote a resounding yes.

    No, because "dress code" means uniformity, and uniformity sucks. It's a strongarm way to bury individuality, creativity, personal expression and it drops the hammer of authoritarianism.

    They do not need uniforms but a dress code is appropriate for both.

    Creative people find a way to display their individuality even with a uniform

    But you must not be very creative

    There is nothing wring with school uniforms if kids want to put on a fashion show they can do it after school

    A new high school teacher may be just 4 or 5 years older than the seniors at the school. So a dress code is especially important for young teachers so that they look like teachers rather than students.

    Given it's a private school, sure. My son went to private school. And I went to private school. I'm used to it. It stimulates a productive learning environment. Education establishments should be treated as professional atmospheres, in my view.
