PPP’s ‘one dress code’ resolution in PAArchive
LAHORE: The Pakistan People’s Party has submitted a resolution in the Punjab Assembly demanding ‘one dress code’ for both public and private sector schools in Punjab.
PPP MPA Khurram Jehangir Wattoo submitted the resolution at the assembly secretariat here on Monday.
“One dress code in schools is essential because it helps maintain uniformity and equality among the students, irrespective of their family and financial background, color, caste, religion, etc.
The dress code also develops a sense of team and family among the students when they represent their school in the outside competitions and events. Uniform is a sign of unity and pride, and civil clothes may unnecessarily distract students from studies,” the resolution says.
“The government should take immediate steps to ensure that all schools in Punjab must observe uniformity in uniforms,” it says.
