Can  you imagine going to school in the winter and having  to wear a coat that is not of a certain brand? At Woodchurch High School in England, they banned expensive coats in an attempt to stop the shaming of less fortunate students in the school. The high school was so serious about the change that they sent a letter to the parents.

This quickly  became a controversial topic. One of the high school teachers said that she was mindful that some young students put pressure on their parents to purchase expensive items of clothing. She also said that it causes a lot of inequality between the students. Almost half (46 percent out of 1,427 students in the school)  come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The banned coat brands are Canada Goose and Moncler. I researched the cost of kid and adult Canada Goose and Moncler coats.  Here are the prices. A kid Canada Goose coat was priced at $525 and a Moncler kid coat is priced at $570.  An adult Canada Goose coat starts at about  $775 and an adult Moncler coat costs $750. Most average families cannot afford these brands.  

The British schools protect kids that are poorer with this new policy. That is why Woodchurch High School banned expensive jackets and coats.  What do you think?

    I agree, since it is bad to put pressure on other kids to spend a lot of money on a coat.
