    Principal Yugo Kuriki is stressing the full equality of the garments. "I want to express that the skirt is not the "main" uniform for girls. I think it's ok for us to free the students from such preconcieved notions."

    ​While not mentioned in the announcement, the new development obviously aims to assist transgender and other sexual minority students, who may feel uncomfortable wearing a skirt.

    The initiative has been recently taken to the next level at a different school in Kashiwa, where a joint board of students, parents and teachers voted on the freedom to choose between skirts and slacks for boys as well.
