Sweden's teachers free to ban Islamic veils
Teachers in Swedish schools can, in certain situations, prohibit students from wearing Islamic veils that reveal only their eyes, the country's school's agency has ruled.
The ban covers clothing that could hinder interaction between students and teachers or which could pose a specific risk, such as in a laboratory.
However, a general ban on headscarves isn't possible.
