Repekt: Prague school's hijab ban request unfortunate
It is unfortunate that a Prague secondary nursing school rejected the request of its two students, Muslim girls, who asked for a permission to wear a headscarf in their classes, Tomas Brolik writes in weekly Respekt out yeterday.
The two girls then left the school on their own to study elsewhere. There was no drama, no extreme emotions, yet the case led to the first "hijab affair" in the Czech Republic, Brolik says.
He notes that the school head Ivanka Kohoutova politely rejected the request, arguing that the school rules permit a covered head neither for students nor for teachers.
