外文标题：UK school bans girls from wearing short skirts
LONDON: An all-girls school in the UK has banned senior students from wearing short skirts, instructing them to wear "sober" suits and minimal makeup in bid to keep the pupils "committed to learning".
St Margaret's School, a 28,500 pounds-a-year boarding school in Bushey, Hertfordshire, has banned A-level students from wearing short skirts.
Rose Hardy, headmistress of the school, has insisted on a strict new dress code of "sober" suits and minimal makeup because, she says, "a smart presentation reflects a professional and focused attitude".
The move has, however, not gone down well with parents who have complained about the uniform, being introduced next term, with one labelling it "funereal" and calling for greater freedom for pupils to express themselves, The Telegraph reported.
"I am at a loss to understand why you would impose such an austere, funereal and outdated dress code on our young women," the parent wrote to the school.
Brits are being Indianised. For this Rahul should blame Modi?

Hope the school for girls improve their understanding what is reasonable and un-reasonable!
Thanks t01 for reporting this news but why was it news in the Indian context? Do you want the copycat Indians to start copying the UK school and ban shorts as well?

Women around the world have been trained to become ''expressive'' and ''independent '' by revealing their skin more and more

Good decision by the school. School is a place of learning and excellence and it is not a place to make a fashion statement. It teaches woman to respect their bodies, they not on exhibition.
