STRIPES AND DOTS BANNED
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.No doubt the classrooms are also suitably drab.
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.
