Would it be appropriate for a skirt wearing man to be a teacher at primary or high-school?

I think not, as it would send out the wrong message.

How about a transgender?

Will this be allowed in the near future?

Already happening: Teacher breaks silence; he's a she

"Kintz’s colleagues are relieved that her transition has been mostly a non-event. “She is so exuberant now, but also works hard at keeping a low profile,” says Lynn Pass, a close friend of Kintz’s who teaches art at West Linn. “She did what she needed to do, but understands there are people who aren’t comfortable with it.” Another colleague, science teacher Jim Hartmann, who has known Kintz for almost 20 years, admits to being “shocked” by how well students have adjusted. “I was very worried for her and her safety,” he says. “But this has gone so well that when a teacher from another school asked me recently how ‘that whole situation turned out,’ I honestly didn’t know what they were talking about.”

As long as he or she can teach the subject well, I don't see a problem with it.

what if the teacher looks very much like a man, yet dresses as a woman - would this be appropriate?

Why should young kids have to be subjected to this confusion?

and, aren't there supposed to be dress codes to prevent this kind of thing anyway......

What does that have to do with teaching? If you're supporting the status quo how do you explain our current world ranking in primary education? What are your proposed solutions?

Do you have kids? I ask that because if you do then you would know that kids would not be confused by this. Kids are smarter than we give them credit for. They accept people for who they are unless we teach them otherwise.
