Schoolboys Protest School’s No-Short Policy by Wearing Skirts Instead

Published

on

The sweltering heat wave in Britain these past days have forced a rising in arms or more accurately a baring of legs at Isca Academy in Devon, England. Despite the temperatures soaring as high 95 degrees, boys at the school have boldly resorted to wearing skirts after being repeatedly reprimanded for wearing shorts instead of long trousers to attend classes.

The idea behind the juvenile uprising was initiated by only a handful of students, one of which was Ryan Lambeth who said that school officials “kept telling us off for wearing shorts and I kept getting excluded. It happened three times. We kept talking about wearing skirts and on Tuesday I thought – right, I’m just going to do it. Then on Wednesday there were five of us. Today there were 50-plus people.”

On the other hand, an update posted on the school’s website explained that “Contrary to news reports, we have not banned shorts; shorts are simply not part of our school uniform.”

It further states in its “hot weather and school uniform update” section: “Parents and pupils will be aware that the hot weather these last few days has prompted interest in our school uniform policy, and notably the trousers, rather than shorts, worn by our male students. However, as summers are becoming hotter, shorts will be introduced as part of our school uniform next year having first consulted with students and parents. We feel that introducing a change in uniform partway through this year would put undue pressure on some of our families.”

Apparently, judging by the school’s recent statement on the issue, the young rebels with a cause have actually ended up victorious. Finally, the week-long protest, which has received attention from around the world, has finally elicited positive response from the school administration for a practical tweak in dress code. The school also confirms that the young activists-in-the-making will remain unpunished for their quirky protest strategy.
