A co-educational independent school is to scrap distinctions between boys and girls uniforms in an effort to accommodate transgender students. Dysphoric or transgender pupils at Brighton College , a private day and boarding school that takes pupils from reception to sixth form, will be able to choose between wearing a traditional blazer, tie and trousers or skirt and bolero jacket. The school said at least one pupil had taken up the option, and several families had made inquiries. Public schools are usually seen as bastions of conservatism but Brighton College feels it is time to break ranks. Richard Cairns, the headteacher, said the move followed discussions with a small number of families. If some boys and girls are happier identifying with a different gender from that in which they were born, then my job is to make sure that we accommodate that. My only interest as headmaster is their welfare and happiness.
Harrowing colourised pictures that expose the full terrors faced by those imprisoned at Nazi death camps have emerged 75 years after Auschwitz was liberated. One particularly haunting photograph shows Istvan Reiner, four, smiling at the camera in the now infamous striped uniform given to inmates. It was taken just weeks before he was murdered at the concentration camp alongside tens of thousands of other innocent people. Upsetting pictures — some seen for the first time in colour — capture the human cost to those taken to Auschwitz to die. One shows a gaunt year-old Russian woman, another malnourished Jewish children peering out at their Soviet rescuers through a barbed wire fence.
School uniform is a practice which dates to the 16th century in the United Kingdom. It is believed that the Christ's Hospital school in London in was the first school to use a uniform for its students. The practice of wearing school uniform has been adopted by many other countries, and is now common in many parts of the world. Uniforms can be regarded as promoting social equality among students and an esprit de corps , but have also been criticised for promoting a form of uniformity characteristic of militarism. The decision as to whether to implement school uniform policy or not is a controversial one and also polarised in societies and countries. In countries such as the United Kingdom, South Africa and a number of Asian nations, school children have to wear approved school uniforms that conform to the uniform policy of their school. In modern Europe, Britain and Ireland stand out as the only countries where school uniform is widely adopted by state schools and generally supported by national and local governments, although there is no legislation governing school uniform in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In Australia, each school or school system can set its own uniform policy. Wearing a uniform is compulsory in most Australian private and all Catholic schools, as well as in most public schools, although it is sometimes less enforced in primary schools that have uniforms.
