Boy wears skirt to school in protest

A 12-year-old school boy of Impington Village College, near Cambridge, wore a skirt to school to protest against the rules that ban boys from wearing shorts.

'Daily Mail' quoted Chris Whitehead as saying: "It is unfair that girls can change into skirts during the hot weather, while boys have to swelter in long trousers."

Whitehead, who is in Year 8, said wearing long trousers in summer affects boys' ability to concentrate. "It discriminates against boys. I will march in a skirt with other boys waving banners and making a lot of noise."

The school policy states students must wear 'plain black tailored trousers or knee-length skirts without slits' but does not specify a gender. This means shorts are banned by their omission.

"Wearing a skirt is just like wearing shorts with a gap in the middle. I don’t feel silly at all. I don’t embarrass easily," he said.

Meanwhile, his mother, a math teacher, said: ‘I’m delighted that Chris is taking action on what he believes in..."

The boy's father, who owns a publishing company, added: "It’s a creative and imaginative idea."
