Primary School Has Asked Boys And All Teachers To Wear Skirts To Promote Equality (photos)
Castleview Primary School in Edinburgh has asked all pupils to wear skirts today to 'promote equality'
But the request from Castleview Primary in Edinburgh has been criticised by some parents.
Note, these follows a similar move in Spain where teachers and children have worn skirts to show solidarity with a boy who was expelled for wearing one last year.
November 4 is now ‘wear a skirt to school day’ in Spain.
Going by the reports, an email to parents from Castleview said it wanted children to be ‘comfortable’ taking part and that trousers and leggings could be worn under the skirts if needed.
It even offered to provide skirts for some youngsters if none were suitable at home. Teachers can wear skirts too.
One mother called Megan with a son at the school tweeted: ‘My son is five and just got this from the school! Let kids be kids.’
Another Twitter user called Nicola replied: ‘If a boy wants to wear a skirt to school, he should be allowed, but why put pressure on people to ask their son to wear a skirt or be seen as some sort of bigot?’
