The Assam government issued a dress code for school teachers, saying some of them were in the “habit” of wearing clothes that sometimes did not seem acceptable to the public at large. The notification issued on Friday said teachers will have to attend classes in formal clothes in plain colours, strictly avoiding party and casual wear.
Sharing the order on Twitter on Saturday, Education Minister Ranoj Pegu wrote, ‘There are some misconceptions regarding the dress code prescribed for school teachers. I am sharing the notification for clarity. The notification said that it has been observed that some teachers were “in the habit of wearing clothes of their choice which at times were not found acceptable by the public at large”.
“Since a teacher is expected to be an example of decency in all forms especially while discharging his/her duties, it has become necessary to follow a dress code which reflects decorum, decency, professionalism and purpose at the workplace. Show seriousness,” it said.
As per the prescribed dress code, male teachers should wear formal dress only, with formal shirt-pants being the accepted dress. Women teachers should be dressed in “decent salwar suit/saree/mekhela-chador” and not casual attire like T-shirts, jeans and leggings.
The notification states that both male and female teachers should wear “neat, modest and decent clothes in clean colours, which should not look flashy” and should strictly avoid casual and party wear.
