Four fingers

Do you think school uniforms are a great leveller or a waste of time? I don’t think I hated my school uniform(s), but I didn’t like how anal-retentive the ‘authorities’ were about how we wore them — that was a complete bugger. Maybe the UK should take a leaf from China’s book and dress all school kids in shell suits. For some it’s pretty much all they wear anyway! (The ‘four fingers’ refers to how high our socks had to be over the tops of our school shoes. No more, no less. And it had to be four of whoever’s fingers were doing the measuring.)
