The principal of a primary school in northern England wants to impose a dress code — not on students, but on their parents.
That’s because she’s tired of them wearing pajamas and slippers when they drop off their offspring at the school gates each morning.
Kate Chisholm of Skerne Park Academy in Darlington, 240 miles (385 kilometers) north of London said she acted after some parents wore what she considered nightwear to school meetings.
In the letter published Tuesday she asked parents to “dress appropriately in day wear” when bringing their children to school.
Chisholm said she wanted parents to set a good example for the students and that it was “not too much to ask parents to have a wash and get dressed.”

Society has reached a sad state when adults have to be taught basic dress and hygiene.
Don’t they have JOBS that they need to get dressed for??
Megyn Kelly is having the last laugh.
The D. can’t help but shoot himself in the foot
he can’t see beyond his own view of himself , hence
it keeps making major mistakes.
Bring this comment elsewhere,DUMMY!

Note that in England being on the dole (ie benefits you get for not being able to find or hold a job – which you can go on at age 16) pays better than the average individual who has been working for 10 years – some 20K pounds (about $30,000) a year. So it is not surprising that folks show up to deliver their kids to school in pajamas – hell they can go back home and go back to bed so why get dressed.
