CASUAL FRIDAYS AND… Thursdays, Wednesdays Tuesdays, Mondays

One lady writes,

Employed by the human-development center of a corporation in the mid-west, my friend trains employees in proper dress codes and etiquette.  One day as she was stepping onto the elevator, a man casually dressed in jeans and a golf shirt got on with her.  Thinking of her responsibilities, she scolded, “Dressed a little casually today, aren’t we?”  The man replied, “That’s one benefit of owning the company…”

Casual dress codes are not only becoming the norm in the work place, but also in the class room.  However,  one of California’s largest school districts has gone way beyond anywhere else – no dress code at all.  That’s right, except for the very most revealing parts of the male/female sexual anatomy (which must be covered with opaque material) anything else goes.  You can wear whatever – as short as you want to, as low as you want to, as tight as you want to, as transparent as you want to, etc.  A student can even go to class in their pajamas (if you just didn’t feel like getting dressed for school on that day).  The thinking behind this is to eliminate any possible confrontation with teens over clothes, which is not viewed as the school’s job.  And in a sense they’re right – what a young person wears to class is the parent’s responsibility, not the teacher’s.


● The school does  have a conservative dress code with proper length dresses or skirts for girls and casual pants and appropriate shirts for boys.

● The school dress code for boys includes: traditional short hair style, no body piercing, no tattoos, no feminine jewellery, no hats or hoods in class, etc.

● The school dress code for girls includes: feminine hairstyle, minimum jewellery, modest make-up, and no clothing too tight, too high, too low, or too transparent.
● The school does require foot-ware on its students,  but socks or hose are not mandatory, especially in the warmer weather; however, no flip flops.

I TIMOTHY 2:9-10

Bible – In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; but (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
