The story about Kogane High turned out to be false. Asahi Weekly put the release of K-ON! uniform and the introduction of new school uniform to Kogane High in the same paragraph, but the two stories are unrelated to each other. I retract the news and apologize for posting an incorrect topic.
The subheading reads "It Originated From Anime. Students and Teachers' Idea -Students' Will Takes Priority. It's Economical and Good For Descipline.-" but the phrase"Originated From Anime" is unrelated to the rest of the lines. I should have been cautious in handling such a low resolution scan.
According to Asahi Junior High Weekly, Chiba Prefectural Kogane High School adopted the uniform of K-ON!
. The students of Kogane High hadn't worn uniforms but they decided to introduced one and K-ON! uniform was selected by the students' request. The teachers and the students are satisfied with the uniform because it's economical and made a good effect on the students' discipline of their appearance.
