    If I'd been your Dad I'd have gone in and punched the idiot of a Teacher whose bright idea it was to let a kid freeze all day by confiscating their coat....

    We just often (par really bad weather) wore Football Shirts under our Shirts not Coats and unless it was rerally visable we'd not be told off!

    ... though I like the thought of how it was done in the 90s (The Nevi/Builders look) by wearing a Footy Shirt or T-Shirt under your Shirt with all Shirt Buttons un-done or quite a lot too!

I went to an ex Grammar school and many of the teachers and rules were still in place when I started there in 1984. The headmaster walked around with his mortar hat on (think thats what they are called!) and his black cape. Everyone called him batman! Things started to slacken off a bit in 1986 when the head retired.
    Sounds a bit like my old school, ex grammar school, walk on the left, split playgrounds, headteacher with a cape...spooky
    The only thing to look forward to is the past

    Not sure if it was a rule (though I guess it was) in a way. I hated the sit-ins we had to take in turn with other Years for Lunch. You could be certain 3 weeks out of 4 you'd be last or 2nd last!

    In high school we had to keep to the right. Which I suppose is reasonable enough.

    In primary school just standing there in the playground, not associating with anyone was strictly taboo. You HAD to mix and play with other children. Daft rule because you can't make people be with those they don't want to be with.

    Yeah but this is School for you sadly Agnetha, they like thing's to be politcaly correct and thing's to have to be seen as they are! Just like the School Bully always got given more of a sympathy vote by the Teachers than the victim .... I recall often thing's were said along the lines of "they have got problems at home, you've got to go easy with them/they don't mean it really at heart"

    Political correctness was not the problem in my schooldays it became later, 80sChav, but I understand what you mean. Teachers had to be seen to make the gesture, as you said.
