Dennis Prager: One man wore jacket and tie at high school graduation
: "Equality: A word that is often used to describe formal clothing is 'classy,' a word which itself derives from 'class.' Because of its derivation, however, the word is rarely used today -- it conflicts with one of our era's dominant values, egalitarianism. Therefore more and more people dress and act . . . classless, such as when they all wear T-shirts. That is also why so many teachers don't dress up to teach -- the egalitarians who run American education don't want students to regard teachers as being of a higher class than students."
Quite an interesting article on why people don't dress up any more.
