If education is done right, it can change the world for the better. This is why the teachers of Spain are taking a stand for a male student who was expelled for wearing a skirt.
As a protest, this year 37-year-old Manuel Ortega and 36-year-old started showing up in the class wearing skirts. It’s all part of the Clothes Have No Gender (#laropanotienegenero) movement. This movement wants to put a stop to gender norms in the European country.
