In my 30 years teaching in the public school system, I have seen teachers wear everything from nylon workout pants to cleavage-exposing silk cocktail dresses with spike heels, to hip-hugging pants that expose thong underwear, to ragged sweatshirts and dirty hiking boots, to sparkly garb giving them the appearance of an American flag. One of the things I have always loved about the profession is that there really is no dress code.
I have seen students encouraged to come to school wearing their clothing backwards, or dressed as pirates, or in pajamas and slippers, or wearing Cat in the Hat 2-foot-tall striped headgear, all in the name of promoting school spirit.
Given all this, I cannot imagine how the daily, routine wearing of traditional/religious clothing by teachers could be called "disruptive".
