Two Minutes with Dr. Yahya  د. يحيى : Kissing is Banned in England Schools

Hasan A. Yahya, Ph.Ds- Arab American Encyclopedia– Health Section

This is not found only in Arab and Islamic schools. England practices Islamic morality.

Recently I read an article, in the Daily Telegraph, made me wonder about the concepts: freedom and rules. In summary,   pupils at a high-achieving school have been banned from kissing. A headmaster of Kings of Wessex School in Somerset,  England, has told all 1,200 pupils that they face detention if caught ‘snogging’. Having sexual affairs, such as kissing, hugging, or playing closely to each other. The reaction of  parents at the school for 13 to 18-year-olds was in disagreement with the headmaster, they claim that kissing is an integral part of teenage life, and kids are free to practice it.  The move follows a string of disciplinary incidents at the school, including the case of a pupil who was threatened with expulsion after being caught eating an apple on school tennis courts. Children have also been given detention in the past for undoing shirt top buttons, taking off blazers on hot days or wearing the wrong shade of black trousers.

Complaining about the kissing ban, one parent of a pupil at the Church of England Foundation School said: “Snogging is part of teenage life.” and “Most schools probably frown on pupils kissing. But actually banning it under threat of punishment is going a step too far.” The school is a Specialist Technology College and has received government awards for sustained improvement in exam results over recent years.

Incidents or challenges happen among students facing school regulations and rules.  For example, two years ago, a pupil,  16 years of age was almost expelled after refusing to accept detention for eating an apple on a tennis court, where food is banned. Furthermore,  in 2003, 22 children were accused of breaching the uniform code by wearing plain supermarket-bought blazers instead of more expensive ones from the school outfitters. Parents formed a protest group – branding the strictness “Dickensian”. A stigma of old thinking. On the school’s website defending the school position, the Headmaster  says: “We are a forward-thinking school but we still believe in traditional values.”

The question why schools ban kissing and “Snogging” on the school yards? Readers may guess the answer for the question in one word: “AIDS”. Or in more elaboration, “The fear of getting AIDS”. Which I believe is true, people, especially school administrators are fearful of AIDS symptoms, which can be contacted by such kissing and “Snogging”. Talking about freedom  doesn’t help much here, if the claim of fear from AIDS was true.  But thinking of parents and their teenage children, do not give a dam about conservatism. AIDS, is not included in their thinking. They may change their minds if they consider it. Isn’t it? (451 words) www.hasanyahya.com
