WASHINGTON — A Florida school board member is aiming to change a dress code — except it’s not for students.

Broward County school board member Dr. Rosalind Osgood told the Sun Sentinel that she sees parents drop off their children at school wearing sagging pants, short shorts, pajamas and hair curlers.

She says if students can’t dress that way, parents shouldn’t either.

“It’s hard for me to tell a child not to show up for school with hair curlers, pajamas or short shorts if they see parents wearing them. Parents need to lead by example,” she said at a school board meeting, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Osgood says she recognizes it’s unlikely the district could enforce a dress code for parents, but the school could address it during a parent night.
