Over 100 children were forced to sit in detention in the UK, for simply wearing the wrong trousers. The incident happened at a school in Newcastle, where the kids were forced to miss classes for up to eight hours, local media report.
The head teacher of the school, Lynne Ackland, said she had given the parents prior warning that the school would be clamping down on those who didn’t wear the correct attire.
“We have been discussing these uniform proposals for a long time,” she told The Evening Chronicle. “We have communicated at length with parents, pupils and school governors. I think there is some learning to be had from yesterday. More than one or two members of staff were dealing with the uniforms and perhaps there was a lack of continuity.”
