Parents staged an angry protest after their young daughters were forced to strip to their underwear in front of boys at school.
The girls, aged ten and 11, were left in tears after being ordered to change for PE in a mixed classroom under a school policy blamed on health and safety regulations.
The headmistress of Hillside School in Baddeley Green, Stoke-on-Trent, said the children had to get changed together as there were not enough teachers to supervise them separately.
But furious mother Dawn Bedford said her ten-year-old daughter Sam was reduced tears by the rules.
This girl took matters into her own hands, repossessing her gym bag, running to the bathroom, and changing there. Other young ladies were reduced to attempting to hide under desks while changing. Many were in tears.
Truly, men and women are not the same– neither are boys and girls. There should be no reason in a culture (a western culture) that is as sexualized as ours that boys and girls should be forced to change in the same room. I mean, even in families we start separating boys and girls into their own rooms way before this age.
There’s no reason for this to happen– they could have been excused to the restroom or they could have found another teacher. Just another reason why you should be homeschooling.
