Luxembourg: Ministry proposes allowing separate gym classes, prayer rooms
Islam in Europe
A new draft proposal by the Luxembourg Ministry of Education proposes allowing headscarves, prayer rooms, and separate gym classes for boys and girls. The proposal was sent to school principals for peer review, and was leaked by the local humanist association.
The proposal suggests allowing religious headgear in schools for students. It bans face veils and religious headgear for teachers. The Ministry also proposes setting aside prayer rooms so that students can pray during breaks. Practicing religion elsewhere will not be allowed.
The proposal allows for students to skip swimming classes. Schools may also organize separate gym classes for boys and girls if parents request them.
