Schools say Muslim students 'should break Ramadan fast' to avoid bad grades
by Javier Espinoza
Hundreds of schools in England, Waled and Northern Ireland have asked parents to allow children to break their Ramadan during exam season after government-backed guidelines raise concerns that their grades could suffer, the Daily Telegraph can reveal.
Ramadan has been gradually moving into the summer exams season in England and this year falls between June 6 and July 5, when many of the summer exams take place, for the first time in more than three decades.
Heads fear young Muslim students will have health issues as a result of fasting all day during the time of year where the days are longer and their exam results will take a hit as a result.
