>Short shrift

>Today’s Evening Argus reports that pupils at Brighton’s Catholic secondary school staged a one hour sit down protest demanding the right to wear shorts (not included in the school’s accepted uniform policy) during the current heatwave. The headteacher called an emergency school assembly and agreed their demand – later rubber stamped by a special meeting of the school governors. Difficult to know whether to despair or be impressed at the democratic culture of our schools.
