If The Father Is This Thick, The School Has Little Chance With The Child...

Simon Muller was appalled when his son Liam, a year seven student at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA), told him pupils would be put in isolation if they did not wear trousers and a shirt. Last month temperatures reached up to 30 degrees Celsius in Sussex, so Mr Muller felt the need to question his son’s school.
Mr Muller, 34, said: “I get a list of items of clothing that I have to pay for out of my own money each year, and there are school P.E shorts included in it.
If it is part of the uniform, why can’t he wear it to keep himself cool?
Because it's for PE. Not for the classroom.
I could understand if they had a Nike tick on or something, but they don’t.
“I don’t want to wake up to the news one morning that a child has died because of overheating due to a stupid uniform policy.”
Oh, FFS!

Sometimes only a triple *face palm* is the correct response.

I wonder why I haven't seen children dropping like flies in their school uniforms. Where I live it is often over 40o in summer and they persist in going to school clothed.

Of course if 'Dad' had thought things through a bit more and insisted the boy be allowed to wear a girl's PE Hockey Skirt , the school would have fallen over themselves to comply with Gender Equality Guidelines.

Mind you, I'm not sure if the 'gals' are even allowed to wear those mini-hockey skirts for games anymore- gender stereotyping and all...
