Girl takes a stand for shorts in school flap

A Montreal girl has started a pushback against rules on what girls can wear in school after she was ordered to change the shorts she’d worn to school on a recent hot day.

Lindsey Stocker says she felt singled out. Why should she have to change the way she dresses? Why not discipline boys for their behavior instead?

So she started putting up signs around the school, the National Post says.

The posters were only up for about 10 minutes.

Other girls started wearing shorts to school.

Stocker was suspended.

“The rules are there to help the children learn and prepare them for their future work places, high school is a job for them, they are there to learn to function in society, so it’s important that the rules be followed,” School board member Susanne Stein Day said.
