In a move that is expected to provide relief to parents who do not want to purchase new school uniforms for their wards, private schools in Sharjah have been asked not to force them to invest in new uniforms. As the academic year commences, many parents are perturbed about the possibility of schools forcing them to buy new uniforms.
The new measure has called upon schools not to do so unless there is a change in the pattern of the existing uniforms. The move comes in the wake of the fresh academic year and acknowledges the freedom of the parents in gauging the needs of their wards. The statement also said that when students have uniforms in good condition from the previous season, it essentially negates the need to indulge in the purchase of a new one.
Some private schools include the cost of the uniforms in the total framework of fees that may prove to be too exorbitant for some parents who struggle with maintaining the fiscal aspects of their household. This new measure will certainly provide a measure of relief to parents.
