Anti-miniskirt witchhunt in England

This 4 January 2016 video is called BBC News SE – The Ebbsfleet Academy School Uniform – Skirts.

Unfortunately, there are not only anti-miniskirt witch-hunters in Saudi Arabia. And Italy. And Poland. And New York City and elsewhere in the USA.

Also in England.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Parents angry after teens sent home for short skirts

Thursday 5th January 2016

PARENTS condemned a headteacher yesterday for “shutting the gates in the faces” of 20 teenage girls at a school in Kent because of the length of their skirts.

Ebbsfleet Academy

These ‘academies’ are products of privatisation of education by Tony Blair and Conservative governments; which opened the doors for all sorts of for profit and/or religious fanatics and weirdos to get their hands on schoolchildren.

head Alison Colwell sent the pupils home on the first day of term, saying that to “flash large amounts of thigh” goes against school policy.

Ms Colwell defended the school’s ban on skirts that end more than 5cm above the knee.

One mother wrote on Facebook that her daughter had been turned away for wearing a skirt that she had worn previously to the school. She claimed: “They’re letting their pupils down by turning them away for silly reasons.”

Terry Joseph, whose daughter was also sent home, said: “My biggest concern was for the safety of the children, as the school has a duty of care.

“They put out quite a few girls and boys out of the school without their parents’ knowledge. There were children walking the streets of Kent, perhaps some without anywhere to go.”

According to this source, ‘around 200′, not ’20’ girls. And:

In 2013, the school hit the headlines when it was dubbed ‘Colditz Academy’ after Ms Colwell sent home five per cent of its pupils in one day for breaching new uniform rules.

One girl was turned away from the gates of Ebbsfleet Academy in Swanscombe, Kent, because her bag was too small while another female pupil, who has no eyebrows, was sent straight home because she broke make-up rules by using an eyebrow pencil.

Other pupils were told to leave because the coloured tags on popular footwear brand Kickers breached an ‘all black’ rule.

And here, I am not even talking about anti-maxiskirt witchhunters.
