Canvas shoes likely to replace school leather shoes

06
May '10
Remnant of the colonial empire and considered harmful, painful and dangerous to the environment, the black, shiny leather shoes will soon be wiped out of school campuses across India.

Replacing these shoes in the school uniform sets are canvas shoes that were so far utilised only for physical education lessons.

A proposal for this change, which has been recommended by Member of Parliament and animal rights activist, Maneka Gandhi, has already started influencing prominent school boards such as the Central Board of School Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE).

According to the People for Animals (PFA), the biggest consumers of leather shoes are school kids, as many schools, both private and government, have for years, insisted on black leather shoes as a mandatory item in the school uniform set.

Sixteen schools in Chennai have already stopped utilising leather shoes post PFA's campaign against use of leather. A similar campaign is going on currently in Chandigarh.
