Description

Lorsque le directeur de l'école annonce une nouvelle politique relative aux uniformes, les amis d'Ian font pression sur lui pour qu'il s'y oppose. Sa meilleure amie Julia l'incite fortement à protester, mais le directeur est également déterminé à convaincre Ian que les uniformes sont une bonne chose. Ian ne veut pas s'en mêler--pour commencer. Puis il fait une découverte qui l'oblige à prendre position--peu importe le prix à payer.

The principal announces that the school is implementing uniforms, and Ian finds himself caught in a conflict. His friend Julia wants him to devise a plan to fight the decision, and the principal is determined to convince Ian the uniforms are a good idea. Ian wants nothing to do with the issue. While doing research for a social justice class, he learns that the manufacturer of the uniforms is on the top-ten list for human-rights violations. When he tells the principal this, all he gets is a reminder that the penalty for refusing to wear the uniforms is suspension, and Ian finds himself caught in a whole new conflict--one with himself.
