Donna Corby, a spokeswoman for the school district, says: "So we decided that teaching is a career, teaching is a profession, and we want to set a professional standard so that our students will look at their teachers and say, 'Yes, they are a professional and yes, I could be a teacher, and I would love to have education as my career for thirty years.'"
Wouldn't a high-school student relate better with a tattooed teacher, anyway?
These guidelines seem seriously misguided (and outdated) to us. What do you think?
