Advocates continue call for holiday school closures
Standing in front of the Montgomery County Council Office Building in Rockville, Northwest High School senior Anhar Karim said he is one of many students in the county who have faced a hard decision related to two Muslim holidays.
Karim said that when a holiday conflicts with school, he can either celebrate and miss class or go to school and miss the celebration.
"We are forcing our students into an unreasonable decision," said Karim, who is president of the Montgomery County Muslim Student Association.
