There's a school in Houston that just implemented a dress code. Which wouldn't be news . . . except that it's a dress code for the PARENTS.
Carlotta Outley Brown is the principal at James Madison High School in Houston, and she sent out a letter earlier this month to the parents telling them they need to start dressing more appropriately when they're dropping off or picking up their kids.
It includes a ban on: Hair rollers . . . pajamas . . . slippers . . . visible underwear . . . jeans with rips on the butt . . . very low cut tops . . . sagging pants . . . and short shorts.
Carlotta says she's implementing the policy, quote, "to prepare our children and let them know daily, the appropriate attire they are supposed to wear when entering a building, going somewhere, [or] applying for a job."
But some of the parents are unhappy . . . and so is the Houston Federation of Teachers.
A spokesperson says, quote, "Having body parts exposed is one thing. Turning someone away because their hair's in rollers . . . is a little ridiculous. Some of that stuff seems a little classist."
Maybe they're just trying to avoid a situation like the one documented by Fountains of Wayne in their now classic "Stacy's Mom"
