The commissioner for Education,Prof.Ngozi Chuma-Udeh has announced the ban of miniskirts in the state’s private and public schools as the state will start a new academic session on Monday.
This was made known by the commissioner during an interactive meeting with education secretaries of public and mission schools held at the Universal Basic Education Board hall, Awka, Anambra State on Saturday.
The commissioner described the growing trend of female pupils putting on miniskirt uniforms to schools as being morally wrong and unacceptable to the standards desired for the children by the state government.
“A student should look smart, well groomed, project positive vibes and not be indecently dressed for school,” she said.
Ngozi urged education secretaries to ensure schools comply with the directives to salvage the future of the pupils in the state.
She charged the secretaries to inculcate the right,morals and discipline in pupils so that they would grow to become responsible.
However, the acceptable length for uniforms in the state remained knee length and not above the knee as it fast became the fashion trend in schools.
