Children's school uniform style is based on intelligence

Al Farooque English medium school in Pandikkad in Malappuram district is accused of differentiating students by asking academically sharp students to wear a different colored uniform from underperformers.

While parents were against the new rule, they were told that the change in uniform will ensure a healthy competition among under performing ones and help them improve. The issue was brought to light after the Child line authorities received a complaint from students and parents against the discrimination. Following the complaint, the school on Thursday withdrew the system, reported the Times of India. However, there was no mention of the psychological pain it caused to students According to a New Indian Express report, 32 of its 800 students were asked to wear different colored uniforms to school while the rest followed regular uniform. Reportedly, this was due to that fact that they were good in studies, said the Childline authorities.

The students claimed that they do not know what parameters have been set by school authorities and came to know about the new system when their respective class teacher announced it. The survey revealed that the students feel discriminated owing to the introduction of the new system.
