School denied permission to bring in uniforms

The Swedish Schools Inspectorate has said no to student uniforms at a private school in Norrköping.

The privately run, publicly funded school argued that it was voluntary for the pupils to attend and that the dress code was well-received by students and parents.

But the inspectorate now says the policy infringes upon a student's individual freedom of expression and has called on the school to stop requiring a dress code.

School CEO Christine Karmfalk tells Radio Sweden she thinks the rules against uniforms should be changed.
