Hot Topic: Casual Clothes in the Classroom

With work casual becoming the norm, we're seeing more and more teachers taking things to the extreme. It's not uncommon to see teachers wearing jeans, tank tops, or trainers to work. While some people don't see anything wrong with this, other people believe that teachers need to dress more professionally.

I believe that jeans are ok in the classroom if they're dark denim or trouser jeans. I don't believe tank tops are appropriate, but have seen women wear sleeveless blouses that look professional, espeically in hot climates without air conditioning. Trainers are a sticky subject; if they're clran and dark, they can often work. Teachers, like nurses, spend a lot of time on their feet and need to be comfortable.

What do you think?
Are casual clothes ok for teachers? What do you typically wear to work?
