Is it time for a dress code for teachers in Irish schools? Politicians could ensure that staff in the classroom observe strict sartorial rules.
That seems to be the plan in Russia, according to the Times Educational Supplement.
Under plans being drawn up by a parliamentary committee, women will be prohibited from wearing skirts that are "too short", necklines that are "too deep" and make-up that is "too bright".
Penalties for failing to adhere to the proposed rules could include appearing on a "wall of shame". That would certainly amuse students.
Perhaps students could send teachers home if they are deemed to be too scruffy.
There is little mention of what rules apply to men under this Russian plan.
Will they be stopped from wearing shorts, and arriving with plunging necklines?
