But a Muslim student gets to wear her Islamic attire in gym class, while everyone else has to follow the dress code rules:
CNSNews.com) - A Muslim ninth-grader in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington will be allowed to wear Islamic attire in gym class, thanks to the intervention of an Islamic civil rights group. The Maryland and Virginia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said it intervened after the gym teacher warned the girl she would flunk the class if she didn’t dress out in the nylon shorts that other students are required to wear. According to CAIR-MD/VA, the teacher allegedly told the girl that the law required her to wear shorts. The student’s family contacted CAIR-MD/VA for assistance, and following CAIR’s discussions with school officials, the student was moved to a different gym class and will be allowed to dress in attire that meets her religious needs, the group said.
Here comes the “sensitivity training” card:
CAIR-MD/VA said it will conduct “diversity training for some of the school’s newer staff.” CAIR-MD/VA has also plans to visit other middle schools and high schools - “to review their policies for accommodating the religious needs of Muslim students during Ramadan, Eid and throughout the school year.”
