To Ben & Jerry: To ‘ allow’ them to wear ‘business dress’ in the Sixth Form !! So Sixth Form is a business is it? Now I’ve heard it all. We know most politicians view schools as an apprenticeship into ‘business’, rather than a place of learning for the intrinsic merit & value of the subjects studied, & it’s a great pity that British parents don’t challenge this. Clearly not clever enough. The UK: all about historically forcing school children to wear uniforms (even disgracefully from pre-prep age) & ‘business dress’. If parents honestly believe that their child will gain better academic results by wearing a uniform or 'smart suit' to school, they're deluded. It's all nonsense. If you tell a child in Europe (Germany, France etc etc) that he or she will have to be stuffed into a uniform, tie & all, or ‘smart business dress’ to attend school, you’d need to stand well away from then when they reply. As for the Sixth Form – the only thing kids should be wearing at that age are ripped jeans.
