    Teacher Uniforms Pros and Cons
    I would like for the teachers at our school to wear uniforms. I'm not as concerned about students wearing uniforms because that is whole another topic. I want to know if anyone knows of a school that has uniforms for the teachers to wear? If so, how is that working and what are the pros and cons? Thanks!

    Some daycares like Kindercare and Children's World require uniforms, but I have never seen a public school do it. I would expect the teacher's wouldn't go for it.

    Even the private schools here do not require a teacher to wear a uniform. Neither do the pre schools, like the Early Childhood Learning Center (a national chain type of preschool) or the Montessori School. What would be the benefit?

    What is your reasoning for teachers to have uniforms? I understand a dress code but what would the goal be for uniforms?

    Some private academies require their teachers to wear uniforms, I believe.

    You mentioned that some academies do it, but the question was what is the belief standard behind having teachers wear uniforms. Why do it? :confused:

    The students wear them, so teachers also wearing them gives the academy a look of unity, sharpness, cleanliness (e.g. white and blue), neatness, professionalism. Uniforms avoid the question, "Which outfit will I wear today?" (Btw, the academies that ask everyone to wear uniforms offer a variety of coordinated clothing so one doesn't wear the same "look" day after day.)

    Well I see your point. You're right it would give a sharpness to the school and I suppose unity of some sort. Being a teacher myself, I think I'd opt out of working at a school with uniforms for me. I work at a school with uniforms for the kids and believe strongly in it (Whole different tangent). Interesting thoughts.

    Richard I would love to see students and all school personal wear uniforms. I think it gives the students a feeling of unity and the sense of when "I put my uniform on it is time to study." I really think it would benefit the public schools. Ok, as for the teachers wearing them, I was a volunteer at my children's school, until my last one left elementary. I can tell you some of the younger female teachers, wore their skirts so short, That I have seen their panties when the wind blew. No kidding, or they bend over and their breast are visible. I also think that they would be cost efficient for the parents.
