Rochester students invited to wear hijab as part of cultural event
by Brett Davidsen
Students at a Rochester city school are being invited to wear a piece of religious clothing on Friday.
The garment is known as a hijab. It's worn by girls and women of Muslim faith. We're told this started with some young girls who sent a letter to their school with concerns about the way they were being treated.
The district says the event Friday will go on at World of Inquiry School -- billed as a cultural event. But some parents tell News10NBC they weren't notified -- and some had reservations about the school promoting something that could be considered faith-related.
