Headscarf ban ruled out for school mums
by Matthew Warren
After months of discussion, the government has opted to give "guidelines" rather than implement a full ban on the wearing of headscarves by Muslim mothers when they are on school property.
Interior minister Claude Guéant published a set of guidelines on Monday titled "Secularism and religious freedom" (Laïcité et liberté religieuse).
He said he would prefer "accommodations" rather than "legislation" on the issue of headscarves.
