“So that there are no ripped jeans, hoodies and the like in schools,” he explained at a meeting of the State Duma Education Committee.
According to him, now schools have the right to set the requirements for the form of students, but they used it only in 37 regions.
Another participant in the meeting, the Minister of Education of the Russian Federation, Sergey Kravtsov, explained that the initiative concerns clothing. It is not about appearance requirements in general, for example, for hair color.
“Hair is internal,” he explained, “but the entire education system must be aimed at ensuring that the child internally understands how and what.”
It should be noted that in November last year, Roskachestvo reported that Russia had begun to develop a national standard for school uniforms. As expected, the first edition will be released in June 2023 and GOST is expected to be approved by the end of 2024. The introduction of a standard does not mean that each individual school will not have a choice.
