The Anambra government has banned wearing miniskirts as a school uniform in all schools in the state.

Commissioner for Education, Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, stated in Awka on Sunday that the announcement of the ban became necessary as schools resume on Monday.

She said the development had been communicated to education secretaries of public and private schools.

The commissioner condemned the growing trend of wearing miniskirts as school uniforms and said it was morally wrong and unacceptable in children of school age.

“A student should look smart, well-groomed, project positive vibes and not be indecently dressed for school.

“The acceptable length for uniforms in the state remains knee length and not above the knee, which is fast becoming the fashion trend in schools,’’ she noted.

The commissioner said education secretaries had been charged to ensure that schools complied with the directive.

Ms Chuma-Udeh also urged the secretaries to instil the right morals and discipline in students so that they would be well-behaved and grow to become responsible adults.
