High school students demand equality in dress codes

Despite soaring temperatures last week, high school girls in many institutions were sent home for wearing shorts, sparking nation-wide protests that have gone viral and have also commanded the attention of Knesset Members.

An online Facebook protest group, with the tagline "teaching schools a lesson in equality", is advertising a demonstration to take place on Tuesday June 16th outside the Knesset.

The group tells stories of high school students from around the country being sent home by their schools for wearing shorts or wearing shorts that were above the school-mandated length.
