Making a child do gym in their undergarments would not be legal in the US at any age, let alone a teenager. In the younger years there is no grade given for gym, they would have to sit out. In high school they do get a grade for gym (in my state), if they did not participate; their grade would be affected.

Our town does not change for gym at any age, other places do. In K-8 school, they only have gym two days a week and are only required to wear sneakers. In high school, some of the girls choose to bring other clothing for gym, but aren't required to.

It's degrading and I would not be happy if my daughter or son had to do p.e in there underwear.
At that age they have hit puberty it's a hard confusing time for them and to make them do p. E in there knickers not on. Other underwear is see through as well it's not the same as wearing a swimming costume.
I would be straight into the head teacher.

I didn't realise they actually made her do it in her knickers. I'd be kicking off anyway for the sake of other girls they might do it to? At that age they're going through puberty starting periods etc, imagine having to face that dilemma of them making you strip to your underwear.

I think as it was the last day of term, and a few of them didn't bring their kit, there wasn't enough spare kit to go around so she had to do it in her underwear as she was the one who is always 'forgetting'. I think it was also to put the other kids off 'forgetting' theirs in future - if they might have to do it in underwear, then they would think twice about 'forgetting' their kit!

No, it was a female teacher! Bit of an old battleaxe. She doesn't take any nonsense!

So many PE teachers seem battleaxes. Odd huh. I hope she learns her lesson now.

I don't know. It didn't seem to bother her too much. And now all the other kids will be put off forgetting their kit, they'll be plenty of spare kit to go around.

Im a teacher in the UK and Honestly this is totally unacceptable acceptable here too. Please approach the schools senior management I'd view it as a serious safe guarding issue.
Where are you?

I wasn't going to make a fuss - my daughter wasn't really bothered. I was a bit surprised that it would happen these days (it used to happen when I was a kid), and to be honest perhaps it might teach her a lesson for being such a pain in PE

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but sure it didn't bother your kid (that's great) but what if the kid had been a victim of sexual abuse or something? This is definitely a child protection issue. Another kid could have photographed her or anything. I'm not an overprotective parent in the slightest, but tbh this is one of the worst school related incidents I have read on here. I'm also a teacher so I know a bit about the legislation which school staff should follow and this definitely falls way below the standards expected. Report it, for the safety of other children.
