READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- The Wake County school board wants no more extra short skirts and flip-flops in class.

On the teachers.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday the school board is asking principals to remind teachers to dress the part.

School board member Debra Goldman questions the professional appearance of some young teachers. Goldman says the school has a strict dress code for students and teachers should set an example.

Superintendent Tony Tata says he'll talk with district staff about the employee dress code, which says teachers should dress appropriately and professionally.

Tama Bouncer with the local chapter of the North Carolina Association of Educators says it's not a big problem. Bouncer says some young teachers may not have made the transition from college student to teacher.
