Eight Reasons the Broward School Board's Parents' Dress Code Is Idiotic

Last week, the Broward County School Board, led by Dr. Rosalind Osgood, announced that it wants to enforce a dress code for parents.

"We have dads showing up in sagging pants," she said, according to the Sun Sentinel. "It's hard for me to tell a child not to show up for school with hair curlers, pajamas, or short shorts if they see parents wearing them. Parents need to lead by example."

Osgood wants to hold a forum about the issue in September and address the apparent issue with parents then.

A dress code. For parents.

Here now are eight reasons why this is an idiotic idea and why we parents refuse to comply.
