The Educator's Notebook

A weekly collection of education-related news from around the web.

School Dress Code Evolves After Called Sexist And Gender Binary

““Not a single thing about the school day has changed,” Campbell says. “But we no longer have the little battles over taking off a hat or pulling kids out of class and calling parents because their shorts are too short,” he adds. “Students feel free to be themselves.””


Every week I send out articles I encounter from around the web. Subject matter ranges from hard knowledge about teaching to research about creativity and cognitive science to stories from other industries that, by analogy, inform what we do as educators. This breadth helps us see our work in new ways.

Readers include teachers, school leaders, university overseers, conference organizers, think tank workers, startup founders, nonprofit leaders, and people who are simply interested in what’s happening in education. They say it helps them keep tabs on what matters most in the conversation surrounding schools, teaching, learning, and more.
