Forced to wear a skirt…. Each term the British press has reports of pupils being sent home from school. What is their crime? Not always bad behaviour. Sometimes it has something to do with fashion. Punk hair, rings in noses and dangerous heels can cause concern but some schools are prepared to send pupils home if their school uniform is too short. Pupils can’t resist the temptation to customise their uniform, change the style of their trousers, write on their ties or adapt their uniform jacket to suit the latest trends. UK students speak out:
  • I hate wearing our school skirt. It is no longer acceptable for girls to have to wear skirts. Making us wear them is totally sexist. In winter we are freezing and the boys are nice and warm in their trousers! It isn’t fair. Emma, 15 Liverpool
  • Three years ago the parents voted for a uniform. It has saved us all loads of money. Everyone looks smart in their school sweatshirt. I think it’s cool. We still have pressure to wear the latest trainers but at least there is no competition about clothes for school. Martin, 16 Northern Ireland
My mate was sent home in June because the Head of Year said her skirt was too short. I mean, it’s ridiculous. I would like to wear long shorts when it is hot but that isn’t possible either. The skirts have to be knee length. It’s like being in prison. I don’t think it makes any difference to our school work or exam results!

Exercise4. Message board: Have your say
Do you think it’s fair to ban young people wearing hoods and baseball caps from shopping centres?

Aisha, age 12, London. “I think it’s stupid to ban hoods and caps. People should be allowed to wear what they want. Clothes are part of your personality.”
Lily, age 13, Leicester. “I agree with this ban completely. Where I live there is a lot of crime and gangs wearing hoods and caps are really scary. If I am on my own and have to walk past a group of hoodies I get scared.”
Jade, age 15, Penarth. “There are so many rules against teenagers. I think adults should let us have some freedom to choose what we wear and what we do. There’s nothing wrong with hoods and caps, it’s just the fashion at the moment.”
Charlie, age 14, Yorkshire. “My friends and I get scared when we see gangs of hoodies in the street. Also if they do commit crime it’s hard to catch them on the CCTV because you can’t see their faces. I think they should be banned.”
Katie, age 16, Glasgow. “Just because you wear a hood or a cap doesn’t mean you’re a criminal. Adults don’t understand teenagers. Don’t the police have more important things to do than look for people who are wearing hoods? Respect for us teenagers, please!”
  • Who do you agree with?
  • Do you think the rule is a good idea?
  • Are there any rules like this in your country?
