Catholic Schools are a Head Scarf’s Haven


A recent article in the NY Times sickens me. In “French Muslims Find Haven in Catholic Schools,” Muslim students have decided to forgo public school for Catholic schools after the 2004 ban on head scarves in public schools. I’m guessing that freedom of religion there isn’t one of the rights we enjoy so casually here.

Headmaster of St. Mauront, Jean Chamoux is quoted as saying: “If I banned the head scarf, half the girls wouldn’t go to school at all. I prefer to have them here, talk to them and tell them that they have a choice. Many actually take it off after a while. My goal is that by the time they graduate they have made a conscious choice, one way or the other.”
