Bangkok Christian College: 1st Day Students Wear Casual Dress to School

Submitted on Tue, 2019-01-08 18:13PrachataiEven though wearing a uniform to school is now obsolete in the majority of developed countries, this issue is still subjected to serious discussion in Thailand. Emerging from this debate is Bangkok Christian College launching an initiative to allow students to choose what to wear by themselves. On 8th January 2019 sees the first day of students wearing casual dress and mascot costumes to school as they put smile on their face, creating a pleasing landscape throughout the school. After a decade of discussions, and based on research in foreign countries that wearing casual dress can relieve stress and promote confidence in students, Bangkok Christian College, one of the oldest protestant school in Thailand, will explore the initiative to let students wear freely for one term. If decline is found in overall academic performance, such initiative will be terminated.  Supakij Jitklongsup, the Director of Bangkok Christian College, reveals that change in the rule comes from an intention to make students happy, creative, and to show that individual diversities can live together.  According to the Ministry of Education, the 2008 Uniform Rule set the standard of uniform for different levels of education to certain extent, but ultimately, the school can diverge from it if they see appropriate. While conservatives claim uniform is social equalizer, a preventer of distraction from learning, and a container of nostalgic experiences after graduation, liberals in Thailand argue it only puts inequality under the rug as it oppresses diversity, creativity, and right to take care of their own bodies.
