Poor parents, must be so hard dressing your kids to follow the school policy of the school YOU'VE ELECTED your children to go to.
The school in question, Hartsdown Academy (remember the academy because that's important) has a headteacher WHO EXPECTS children and their parents to follow the rules, which is something we simply lost in this post-millennial society. A society is which we expect others to follow but not me because I'm different.
The father in the video is very calm and seeks to put his point across I just wish the headteacher had been a bit more confrontational. HE KNEW what the policies were, plain black shoes but no his daughter has something different (brown stripe or not). At what point would suede shoes be suitable in a busy, bustling environment with hundreds of kids on the move at lesson change? Did the father wear suede shoes to school?
Of course, when the kid spills something on her shoes in a science lab etc the academy would be to blame for their lawless, out of control lessons devoid of any safe guarding. Anybody recall a post not so long ago by a parent on here asking about which black trainers to buy her son for school?
The father said he was off to tell the LEA, well good luck with that flower because it's an academy, not under LEA control. Amazing that somebody just happened to be filming? Father knew what was going to happen, will have a sad face in the Daily Mail photo I'm sure.
This headteacher will be gone in six months, the trust who runs the school will back him now as they can't not but just you wait and see. SAD really that we finally have a headteacher setting "rules" and not bending from them, WELL DONE THAT MAN!
In the video look at the huge bright blue bag the kid has? Did you have one of these for school? Deek did but that's a different matter.http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=60f_1473258872
