The Anambra State Government has banned miniskirts in any Anambra State-run institution.
The prohibition became essential as soon as classes resumed on Monday, according to Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, commissioner for education who made this known while speaking to reporters in Akwa on September 18th.
She said that the state’s public and private school education secretaries had been informed of the restriction.
The commissioner criticized the growing practice of youngsters of school age dressing in miniskirts as part of their uniform and declared it to be immoral and undesirable.
According to her, “It goes against the acceptable dress code for schools in the state. A student should look smart, well-groomed, project positive vibes, and not be indecently dressed for school.
Knee length, the commissioner noted, remains 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.” the directive reads.
