A novel response to a medical emergency:
A pre-school in the northern Swedish town of Koskullskulle has banned children from wearing clothes with stripes or polka-dots.

The reason for the ban is an employee at the school suffers from migraine headaches when viewing multi-coloured clothes.

“It’s a pity for the employee and as a result I’ve tried to create an appropriate work environment. The person in question has a right to be able to work,” said pre-school principal Maj Norberg to the Norrländska Socialdemokraten newspaper.

According to parents, children who come to school with “inappropriate” clothing are forced to change to monochrome clothes.
No doubt the classrooms are also suitably drab.

With an employee's health at stake here, they can't go too far. Hopefully, they issue the children with grey crayons and grey sheets of paper to draw on, just in case art classes bring on sudden migraine attacks. It's the only thing to do.

I'd paint my kids' face in stripes and polka dots, just to piss the school off.

May is suggest the employee wear something like this , so she can see everything in monochrome without inconveniencing the children. I mean, it's hardly noticeable.

Would kids have to hang around according to hair colour?

Surely, the mix of red, brown, black and blonde hair would elicit migraines.

And what about whites, Asians, Arabs and blacks having different skin colours?

These people are insane.

Sack the teacher or put them in a cleaning closet until the kids go home.
