Sverdlovsk adopts rules to standardize student appearance

The Sverdlovsk regional government rules on Monday that would standardize the appearance of students in schools throughout the region.

The requirements do not require a definite color or style of clothing, but they do give a general idea about the dress code for current students, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.

Under the new rules, appearance and clothing must conform to generally accepted standards of business style, and they must be secular. Clothing must also relate to the weather conditions and venue for training sessions, temperature control in rooms, sanitary-epidemiological rules and hygienic requirements for clothing for children and adolescents.

The new code does not require uniforms--such a solution would require acceptance from a collective body of educational institutions. The regional Prime Minister of Education Denis Pasler has paid special attention to the idea of possible compensation costs for providing uniforms to large, low-income families, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta.
