Thiruvananthapuram: The general education department has issued an order stating that uniforms are not mandatory for students of the pre-primary sections that are attached to schools in Kerala.

A decision was taken against uniforms for students as it was contrary to the concept of creating an unrestrained pre-schooling environment, the department stated.

The order is based on a report submitted by the general education director as part of formulating a policy on the functioning of the pre-primary schools that are run by the parent-teacher association at government schools.

The department also clarified that pre-primary teaching training courses, conducted by institutions, including KELTRON, that do not follow the guidelines of the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), will not be considered for teaching appointments.
