All in a sporty top. It is 8 in the morning, there are about sixty students. a sit-in protest the one put in place on Thursday morning by the students of the Marco Polo high school in Venice in front of the school door at the sound of the bell.
It all starts with an episode that occurred last week in the artistic field (the Marco Polo also includes the classical high school and the musical). The education teacher physics forced the girls to take lessons in sweatshirts – explains a girl from the Polo Las state artistic high school collective -, saying that girls were required to cover their shapes so as not to distract their classmates. Faced with this story, the collective has set up the protest by showing up to school dressed only in a topsporty: then, the boys moved to the San Trovaso field, not far from the high school, and sat down in the assembly.
The school must teach respect, not change the clothes of the students the protest slogan. We want to send a message to the whole system Italian school, our country one of the few in which sexual education is not provided, if not limited says the girl. Ours was not an attack on the headmaster or the teacher specifically, but on the school system – he reiterates – We need to change mentality. Not the clothes.
