That is what parents look for when sending their kids to a school. What values are taught. Academic Progress. This is what good parenting is about as well. All schools need to enforce an effective discipline in a school ie in this case verbal warnings, issue of red and yellow. If you the Head Master/Mistress of a school would you not enforce certain criteria becoming of your school? Suggestions can be made through the schools council and students can be heard. Changes can be brought about . And in many schools this proves quite effective. What is to say that this is not being done at St James.
The boys once voted to retain caning. Was that cos they thought it was a good idea? They thought they were being independent minded but didn't they do what the head wanted because it was so 'normal' to them.
Who's to say the girls wouldn't vote to retain the long skirts because of the same normalising effect?
Where are the girls anyway? If boys and girls are free to chat then why aren't we seeing any comments that we can identify as coming from pupils at the girls school as well as the boys? Come on lads, round up some female support for what you're saying...
