Rejected petition Make regulations so pupils can wear uniform knee length shorts and not wear blazers in hot weather.

Schools allow skirts for girls but many do not allow shorts for pupils. Also in hot weather pupils are forced to wear blazers which cause over heating. Teachers do not have to follow the same code of dress rules so dress appropriately for weather. School uniform rules should allow the same flexibility with knee length shorts and not wearing blazers to protect children's well being.
