* most provocative picture choice * mention "school management told them (most likely in jest) they could sport skirts as well" early on but choose to place "mostly likely in jest" in parentheses * tone is quite light, perhaps too light?
Is it 30 or 50 boys? Quoted mother -- threat seems more real with mention of "isolation room." Two photos -- one seems to mock the seriousness of protest.
Tone is much more serious/urgent. Begins with larger issue in video of adult males protesting, which contextualizes the boys' protest and making their efforts seem part of a greater issue. Article does not directly quote the headmaster's "sarcasm."
Thirty students participated -- not 50? "Fetching" suggests al lighter tone. Tongue in check attitude: "The scale of the rebellion increased on Thursday, when at least 30 boys opted for the attire." New info re dropping temp! Broader range of quotes from mothers. Limited reference to joking allowance to wear skirts. New slant: economic issues at play.
