High School Bans Students From Wearing Designer Coats

A high school in Merseyside, England has enforced a ban that prevents students from wearing designer coats on school grounds.

The BBC reports the ban was enforced by Woodchurch High School and will be in effect after the Christmas break. The new policy was enforced after many teachers were concerned about the self-esteem of students whose families are unable to afford the coats.

 “We are very concerned as a school about poverty-proofing our school environment and, as such, we met with groups of pupils and made the decision in consultation with them.

“The pupils spoke to us about the pressure on families and the pressure on themselves to wear particularly branded coats. A few years ago we introduced a school bag for the same reason.”

Brands such as Moncler, Canada Goose, and Pyrenex will not be allowed on the school’s campus.

Some people have opposed the school’s policy, calling it “ridiculous” while others agree with the school’s decision.

A Twitter user stated that it is not the school’s decision to decide what is considered “designer” and what isn’t.

“If they are going to ban surely they have to offer a uniformed reasonably priced winter coat … who decides what’s designer? Even brands like Nike and Adidas prices are getting higher so who decides what someone can or cannot afford ? “-@chris_mcg21
