SIVANKUTTY

Kerala Education minister V Sivankutty’s remark comes on the heels of a raging debate among Muslim organisations in Kerala over the introduction of gender-neutral uniforms in schools.

Thiruvanathapuram: Kerala Education minister and CPI(M) leader V Sivankutty said on Wednesday that the state government has no plans to introduce gender-neutral uniforms in all schools.

Sivankutty’s remark comes on the heels of a raging debate among Muslim organisations in Kerala over the introduction of gender-neutral uniforms in schools.

“A few schools introduced gender-neutral uniforms. Students and society at large welcomed it. But the government has no adamant stand that gender-neutral uniforms should be introduced in all schools. Government is against foisting any type of uniform. It is up to school PTAs, parents and local self-government institutions to decide on uniforms,’’ he said.

The Minister said if all stakeholders agree to gender-neutral uniforms the education department will consent to it.
