Anambra State Bans Miniskirt In Anambra Schools

By NewsBits

The Anambra State Government said it has banned the wearing of mini-length, skirt uniforms in schools within the state.

The Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh disclosed this during an interactive meeting with Education Secretaries of public and mission schools held at ASUBEB hall, Awka.

Prof Chuma-Udeh expressed her displeasure on what she regarded as “the growing trend of putting on mini-length uniforms (skirts/gowns) in schools.”

She said that “it goes against the acceptable dress code for schools in the state.”

The commissioner noted that a student should look smart, well-groomed, project positive vibes and not be indecently dressed for school. She insisted that knee-length remained the acceptable length for school uniforms in the state, not above the knee.

 “You are the foundation. You control the formative years of the children. Let us infuse the right morals and discipline in students so they grow to be rational human beings, showing them there is more to life

“If we fail to get it right at this stage, we have failed to protect the future of the children,” Chuma-Udeh stated.

NewsBits reports that the Commissioner met with Education Secretaries from all the 21 local government areas to discuss way forward for the sector as the next academic session commences September 19, 2022.
