Muslim pupils 'withdrawn from music lessons'
by Graeme Paton
Muslim children are being withdrawn from music lessons because some families believe learning an instrument is anti-Islamic, it has emerged.
A number of schools are allowing Muslim parents to pull their children out of classes, even though the subject is a formal part of the national curriculum.
Dr Diana Harris, a lecturer at the Open University, said she had visited schools where half of pupils were withdrawn from music during Ramadan.
