Child Rights Commission: don't insist on school uniforms


Thiruvananthapuram: The Child Rights Commission on Wednesday asked schools in the state not to insist on students wearing uniforms in view of the extremely hot weather conditions.

Chairman P Suresh has instructed that tight uniforms, tie, shoes and other regulations should not be held mandatory during this period.

The Commission has asked CBSE schools to ensure adequate water supply, proper ventilation and fans in the classrooms.   The commission also asked schools to arrange invigilators in  exam halls to allow toilet breaks if necessary,  with the supervision of authorities.  It also asked the authorities to ensure the children are not adversely affected during the exam period considering they are writing exams under considerable pressure in such conditions.

The commission had even earlier given directives that in the rainy months of June and July,  tie and shoes should not be made compulsory.    It pointed out that because of children wearing   tight-fitting dress, and resultantly excessive heat,  proneness to fungus diseases will also increase.  There should also be arrangement for first aid in case of fatigue or sudden fever.

However,  response to the instructions has been mixed with the CBSE/ICSE school management's body expressing disapproval of not being consulted.  Ibrahim Khan, chairman, Kerala Federation of CBSE and ICSE Schools  said that they have already given necessary instructions to schools,  but uniform is part of the discipline.
