A dark cloud of debt can overshadow the certification process for new teachers. Besides the cost of their degrees, students in the education department have costs for further certification exams, background checks, initial licensure and professional liability insurance, as well as being expected to join a professional organization. On top of all that, they are required to dress professionally.
Professional clothing for female teachers includes slacks, modest skirts around the knee, modest dresses covering cleavage, blazers, blouses, closed-toe shoes and nice capris.
