Today, as reported in the Guardian and the BBC, a group of 30 students from ISCA Academy in Exeter wore skirts in a protest against the uniform policy. The school doesn’t allow boys to wear shorts whilst allowing girls to wear skirts with no tights. How unfair on the boys!
The protest happened after one boy complained and the headmistress replied ” Well, you can wear a skirt if you want to!”, probably as a joke. The boys wanted to take her at her word and decided to take the statement literally! One boy said that there was a “nice breeze” when wearing the skirt.
