Boys go to school in skirts to protest 'ban on shorts'
A group of teenage boys at a UK school turned up for classes in skirts to protest against the institution's `no shorts' uniform policy despite the ongoing heatwave. Five boys from ISCA Academy in Exeter, Devon, came to the school in skirts after being told by teachers that they would be placed in isolation were they to walk into class in shorts.The mother of one of the pupils said her 14-year-old was told by the head teacher, “you can wear a skirt if you like“, after he complained about the heat. She said one of the boys did get in trouble, but only because his skirt was “too short“. After the success of the boys' protest, 50 others are now planning to follow suit.
