A primary school has asked boys as well as girls as young as three to go in today wearing skirts – to ‘promote equality’.
But the request from Castleview Primary in Edinburgh has been criticised by some parents.
It follows a similar move in Spain where teachers and children have worn skirts to show solidarity with a boy who was expelled for wearing one last year.
November 4 is now ‘wear a skirt to school day’ in Spain.
An email to parents from Castleview said it wanted children to be ‘comfortable’ taking part and that trousers and leggings could be worn under the skirts if needed.
