A Florida school board member says parents dropping off their children should have to follow a dress code.

"We have dads showing up in sagging pants," Rosalind Osgood told a meeting this week, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

"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."

She added, "Parents need to lead by example."

Osgoode noted the principal at one high school near Fort Lauderdale gives students belts to wear if their pants are saggy.

She acknowledged it was unlikely the school board could enforce a dress code for parents, but did say it is an issue that could be raised on parent-teacher night.
