Removal of excessive uniform policy enforcement in state and private schools

This petition had 338 supporters

Current enforcement of uniform policy in private and state education is excessive. Students are beginning to feel their schools care more about upholding their school's "image" rather than attempting to bolster their school's teaching and student academic achievements.

An example of such is an enforced "spray jacket rule" where students are only permitted to wear a school spray jacket if it is raining. However, on 6-8 ºC days students are being made to wear jumpers or blazers which are poorly insulated and provide little comfort or warmth. Spray jackets are being taken away from students if they wear it on days that are not raining. Students are then becoming sick and unhealthy because of this.

Whilst the majority of students do understand that uniform must be neat and reflect the school in a positive manner, it is not fair to be placed under such conditions especially with it now being winter.
