This School "Banned" Teachers From Wearing Capris

Dress codes have been a cause of conflict in schools over the past couple of years. In Atlanta, Georgia, where summer temperatures can rise to the high 90s, The Douglass County School District has reportedly banned teachers from wearing capris, and it's stirring up some major controversy. 

After being asked what he thought constituted "proper" dress, Superintendent Trent North sent principals and teachers and email listing capri pants as inappropriate along with jeans, leggings, and footwear such as sneakers, and flip flops. The e-mail read;

"Please emphasize the expectation that attire be professional and appropriate. Some items of clothing that are not appropriate for work include jeans (except on Fridays), flip-flops, sneakers, leggings (except when worn with an appropriate length dress), shorts and capris."

NBC affiliate WXIA-TV posted the below video to Facebook explaining the controversy.

The capri controversy is causing quite the stir on Facebook and other social media platforms. People are arguing that for what teachers do on a daily basis, they need to be comfortable, saying that there are certain pairs of capris that look professional. 

Others believe that there isn't a point to the debate at all, having nothing to do with the quality of education for the children of Douglas County.
