Just viewed a report on the News
about a study into school children performing better, if they wear slippers or just socks during there school days.
A twelve month trial has been done in at least one school, which seems to get good results.
That may be the case, but as one child said, "it makes you feel as if you are at home".
That might be so, but children's feet are still developing and forming, sloppy slippers could be more damaging on an all day basis, and be a health and safety issue.
Also, could it be designed to make some of our ethnic friends feel more comfortable ?
Personally, I think all children should wear school shoes and uniforms without relaxing any of the rules that we have now. They need some constructive guidance of formal behaviour.
What next ? Slippers, pyjamas , and sleeping bag ??
