"Jim Franklin, your guest host for this addition of the Ray Appleton program. And as obviously I will say again, it is a privilege to sit here, and the voice voice go right there. Just new batteries for it. What it is batteries are going bad on it. A lot talk about be sure. Join us in the in the noon hour, the city council is going to take up a proposal on putting a a lid a ban a cap there. We go on the ball. I mean it cap on the number of liquor stores that you can get license for here in the city of Fresno. It seems that seventy percent of liquor stores are located south shore. Interesting so council member Miguel areas is going to be joining us in our number two of the program and talk about that good idea bad idea. We'll do that in our number two this hour, though. I I ran across this story. And I've got to bring it to you. And I've got to get you to weigh in on this. Because this is I'm sorry, a pet peeve of mine. How people look in public. I just I'm amazed at how people walk around. It's like do they not have mirrors in their house? Can they do they not just, you know, look at themselves before they go out to see how everybody else is going to view them. I'm sorry. Maybe again, I'm old school. I'm the old guy. But I I was just I would just kind of taught, you know, and you go outside when you go out in public when people can see you, you know, you ought to put your best foot four not just gotta wear a three piece suit everywhere you go. But you gotta comb your hair, you know, yada. I saw a guy the other day that I thought he slept in those clothes he slept in the he had to have slept in those. Did he not look now? I know that he didn't because I know the guy I know that he didn't. But here he is in a in a public place. He's not just getting up to go somewhere. You know, gotta run down and pick up a dozen donuts. No. This is an event that he is attending. This is something he planned on doing. He knew he would be around a lot of people. But yet, obviously he did not. I don't know if you did look at Mary that didn't care. So here, here's the story. This is a Texas school. We talk a lot about, you know, dress codes at school for students, and I believe in that. But here is a school that apparently it got so bad a Houston high school that the principal of the school announced that there would be a dress code for parents that entered the school. So if you're going to come on the school property, I don't care who you are child or parent or adult you are going to adhere to the dress code for parents or you're not going to be allowed on. I like this idea. It's sad that we've gotten to this point. So let me read you a little bit here of the of the story. This is a Texas high school, Houston, Texas where it came from. And so the principal sent out a letter saying that here is a list of the array of clothing, parents are not permitted to wear inside the school or at school events, including a satin cap or bonnet on their head hair. Rollers pajamas of any kind leggings that are showing your bottom, and where your body is not covered from the front or the back, sagging pants men, wearing undershirts and daisy dukes at leaves you out Michael couldn't come to school there. So they said you can't do that the school which has a dress code for students as well. According to Houston, independent school district enacted, the parental dress code to help create a quote professional. Educational environment. This according to the school principal. She wrote this in the letter, she said, quote, we have to have standards. Most of all we must have high standards. We are preparing your child for a prosperous future. She went on to say, let me read some more from the from the letter that she sent out. She says please know that if you break our school rules policies are do not follow one of these rules. You will not be permitted inside the school until you return appropriately dressed for the school setting. Again. Let me remind you we're not talking to the students. We're talking to the parents here. This is a letter sent to the parents because the way that the parents were dressed when they came to pick up their student or do business there on the campus. The letter goes on to say people who do p parents I should say parents we should've went to school to learn how to read parents, we do value you as a partner in your child's education. The notice continue you are your child's first teacher. However, please know that we have to have standards. Most of all we must have high standards. We are preparing your child for a prosperous future is I read earlier letter says to prepare our children, and let them know daily the appropriate tire that we are supposed to. Aware when entering a building going somewhere applying for a job or visiting someone outside of the home setting. I am going to enforce these guidelines on a daily basis at Madison high school. We are preparing our children for the future and it begins here. So she she continues to make that point known here are points. And again, this is from the from the letter, she's even more descriptive that what the parents can and cannot wear. She says, so obviously if she puts this in here you can't wear this. That tells me somebody been wearing it. She's she's saying that note, we're not having that that that note, we're having none of that. So here's some of the things than how she describes it very low cut top or revealing tot tops that can see your busts her words as his will not be permitted in the building or on the premises. I'm with that dresses that are up to your behind. You're having to send this the parents dresses that are up to your behind will not be permitted on the premises or in the building or any tire that is totally unacceptable for the school setting leggings that are showing your bottom, and where your body is not covered. I read this earlier front or back will not be permitted in the building on the print pajamas of any kind will not be permitted in the building along with how shoes or any other attire that could possibly be Djaama's underwear or home setting where now I'm for. For that. I'm sorry. I don't like to see people run around it. But Djaama's care who they are. And I've seen male female go to the grocery store in. Here's some guy running around in his pajamas. I don't care how stylish they are just I think there's a proper attire. Now. Are we going to have the clothing police at my local food store? Probably not. But I do applaud this principle for saying. You know, what we need to set some type of standard we need to send a signal to our children. We are there examples that this is not what you should wear out in public. And if I can't police it any other where any other way, then I'm gonna I'm gonna police it the at school. I applaud this. I applaud this principle for doing this. I think this is the right thing to do if we're going to do it for our children. If we're going to say, all right? There's a dress code for the children and some would say, no, we don't eat dress code. So let me give you telephone number because I want you to weigh in on this four nine zero fifty eight fifty eight one eight hundred seven seven six fifty eight fifty eight do you back the principal, or is she just gone too far that for parents coming onto the school property that there is a dress code one that I'm sure would MIR. I haven't looked at what the dress code is for the students. I would think that it would mirror this and probably even a little bit more conservative. I would hope but so what's good for the goose is good for the gander. If we're gonna require the children would not require it of the of the parents, also if this is going to be the environment that we say, this is the way that you dress in public, then if we're going to make our children do that require that or them. Why would we not require it or the parents coming on the ground, and what you do at your out in out in public, whatever then they have no control over that. But you come on the school grounds than this. A controlled environment. And we're going to require some standards. We do it of the children. Why wouldn't we do it of the parents? So do you back the principal in this? Or do you think she's gone too, far or just where are your on the entire dress code? So here's what California does. So that's Texas. So here's California. And this is the story. So I look at was so California's answer to this was when the children complain about the dress code is this from a San Francisco Bay area school district. They started at this year that they say let the children where what they want. That's california. That's right. That San Francisco just just let them wear what they want opponents of strict dress code coats, say punishing students for their clothing is a form of shaming that can result in body image issues, not only that rules are inconsistently enforced. This is from the school there in San Francisco once. San Francisco Bay area school has a possible solution. Let students wear what they want. The teacher says we want kids and parents guardians to be deciding what is appropriate. You think it's appropriate that then it's appropriate. Well, this this. So this is California. This is San Francisco values, that's Texas values where are you on this the think again, they should they shouldn't the the principal overstep? Her means or do we need more like her go the phone lines? Now four nine zero fifty eight fifty eight one eight hundred seven seven six fifty eight fifty eight Alex start this one off fours. Well, you know, personally, I have to wear uniform to school are not go to work, and you know, my children charter school they have to work uniform as well. Kind prepare them, you know, in a live to, you know. Just what it is prepare laughing as for the parents. Backup this principle because we do have to have a standard set or. As parents and for the children. So what what is the most inappropriate thing you've seen out in public of adults wearing? And I'm not talking about. I'm not talking about obscene stuff. I've seen that too. Like, they didn't have enough clothing to the cotton that they use to make their clothing, you could have put in the top of a medicine bottle is is about that much. But but I'm talking about just bizarre stuff that you've seen Dulce wear out there. Oh god. It's mostly. I don't let the skinny jeans. We'll be ready to raising the ninetieth to go with those little a little baggie, but not too bad. Yeah. It's it's there's Victoria and having secrets today any more. I'm telling you out in the public is just it's gotten that way. And but me, I'm just I'm back with the with the Bahamas. I don't wanna see the pajamas. Don't want to see the JAMA's out in public. So you had back this you had back this principle. I would percents. All right, Alex. Appreciate the call. Okay. There. You have it folks. And so where are you on this this big issue? We've got an issue right now in Clovis. You saw the story of a young lady who wore a hat that. They said was inappropriate. And let me see what did the hat have on it. I'm sure it was something we get the story right here. I'm sure it was some type of obscene gesture some what was it here? Oh, yes. Make our country. Great again. That's what was on the the mega had. And so that's inappropriate. So so you can go to the extremes on that. And that's a story I wanna get into a little bit. But I I want to get your thoughts on again. What about this principle, would you backer? She's there in Texas. She has put a dress code for parents visiting the school that you got it. You got address appropriately. And no Djaama's none of this low cut stuff. None of this leggings stuff. All of that. You got you got address appropriate. You gotta match pretty much. I'm sure what the dress code is for the students before you can come on the campus. Now, the they're the liberals on that side are just they're going wild on this. I know you can't do that. It's discrimination that want here is Ashton woods who is a candidate for the Houston city council and the founder of black lives matter in Houston. According to his Twitter bio sharply criticize the policy calling it elitism, quote, most of the parents likely can't afford to comply with this dress code. Why do.
