Sir Michael Wilshaw made comments on how he supports school which ban the inappropriate wearing of the veil by women. He said that if wearing the veil stops students learning and progressing their best then it should be banned at that school. He was talking about teachers, TAs and students wearing the veil.
In class today 10/RE3 learnt about how the Qur’an says men and women should be modestly dressed and not wear tight clothing. We talked about the positive and negative effects of wearing the niqab; but we forgot to talk about these effects on society in general! Can you think of how it might be good or bad for society if women wear the niqab?
