In one of the private schools of London, the male students are planning to allow the wearing of skirts in the framework of the programme for the introduction of gender-neutral uniforms.
In the school explain this initiative with the aspiration to equalize the rights of boys and girls who are allowed to wear pants, writes the BBC Russian service.
In school, Highgate, where they plan to introduce a new form, had previously stated that more of her students begins to question his own gender identity. Semester at the school costs $ 6790 pounds (8.7 million dollars).
Now the female set of school uniform consists of a blouse, jacket, tie optional, and either a plaid skirt or pants. In the men’s version of the form provided only trousers, and some see it as a manifestation of inequality.
In addition to the uniforms for both sexes in school think about how to make the shared toilets and allow girls to engage in male sports.
As told in an interview with reporters, the school Director Adam Petitt, to introduce a new uniform asked the students themselves. The current generation of youth is alien to the dualistic perception of the world characteristic of adults, says the Director.
“Thus, we explore how our policy in relation to uniforms can be adapted for those who wants to bring their clothes in line with the floor and for those who do not want to do that,” adds the Director.
According to official data, the number of teenagers in Britain, who seek advice on sex change in recent years is increasing. Activists campaigning for gender equality in the teenage environment, had previously demanded that schools oblige teachers to communicate with students phrases that appeal to the gender, such as “be a man”.
In 2015, Britain has doubled the number of adolescents under the age of 18, sent to the only in England clinic dealing with gender identity.
In reception to the specialists of treatment-and-prophylactic centre Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust (he is in a London hospital Tavistock) last year turned nearly 1,400 people, and girls among them were almost two times more than boys.
