As a graduate of Mater Dei High School, I understand that having a dress code isn't the most appealing thing in the world. From what I understand, it's become even stricter since I graduated back in 199...well, that's not important.
Even though I wasn't a huge fan of the dress code, I would have never thought to stage a protest like this.
Up until two years ago, the boys at the Impington Village College in England were allowed to wear shorts during the warmer months, while the girls were allowed to wear skirts.
That all changed when a new school policy banned the wearing of shorts at school - a surprising decision, considering that the girls' dress code remained the same.
