School Bans Students From Wearing Moncler, and Canada Goose Coats costing up to $900
As we all know, High School can be tough and like every growing young adult dealing with the anxiety of fitting in can be overwhelming for some, even parents. A High School bans Canada Goose and Moncler jackets to protect poorer children. According to CNN, A High School in northwestern England is attempting to level for disadvantage students and effort to stop "poverty-shaming." Parents of students at Woodchurch High School, an institution in northwestern England, received a letter earlier this month from the school regarding the new policy.
"Pupils will not be permitted to bring in Canadian Goose and Moncler coats after the Christmas break," the letter reads.
Headteacher Rebekah Phillips tells The Independent that some students had been coming to school in 700 pound (nearly $900) coats. This wasn't good for students whose parents couldn't afford such clothes. "They feel stigmatized, they feel left out, they feel inadequate," she says. Also according to CNN, Around 46% of the 1,427 student body comes from a disadvantaged background and the school has introduced other measures to prevent social inequality from affecting children's performance. The support from parents/carers has been overwhelmingly positive and we are very thankful for this.These initiatives have led to better school attendance by poorer children and improved the behavior of all students by tackling the forms of bullying associated with inequality.
