Britain moves against hijab in schools

Britain’s top schools monitoring authority has instructed inspectors to mark down institutions where face covering veils such as hijab are hampering learning.

This comes days after Prime Minister, David Cameron, advocated the removal of face coverings at educational institutions.

The Head of the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Schools, Sir. Michael Wilshaw, instructed his inspectors to mark down institutions if they judged the wearing of the veil was acting as a barrier to learning and to positive social interaction.

It was also made clear  that where leaders are condoning the wearing of the face veil by staff members or by pupils when this is clearly hindering communication and effective teaching, they should give consideration to judging the school as inadequate.

Wilshaw said this is to prepare pupils equally for life in the 21st century whether faith- based schools  or non faith-based schools.
