Teen boys wear skirts to protest discriminatory uniform policy amid heatwave

A group of teenage boys in the UK have donned skirts to protest a discriminatory uniform policy during some of the hottest temperatures in decades.

The boys at the Icsa academy in Devon wore the skirts as they are banned from wearing shorts even in hot weather.

Around 30 boys arrived at school last week wearing the skirts at the school in Exeter.

On boy described wearing the skirt as “quite refreshing” and told the Guardian that he even knew that Royal Ascot’s attendees were even allowed to remove their jackets during races lat week.
