Death of Parody in Little Rock School District

We've come a long way since 1957. Then the Little Rock school district became known for Governor Faubus's use of the Arkansas National Guard to prevent the integration of Central High School. Those were serious times. Not any more.

This fall newly-chosen Superintendent Dexter Suggs set a new dress code for district teachers which was so reviled that he has postponed its implementation until next year--to give everyone time to get used to it. Among the usual strictures one was roundly opposed by organized labor: teachers must wear underwear at all times and females must wear bras.

How could anyone parody that?
