    The only thing I object to is that "Christian and Jewish symbols are not included in the ban", which seems a bit unfair. Apparently it's to protect students from a "fundamentalist influence"; how they can justify that is beyond me.
    A very small minority of muslims have done terrorist acts against the west. Nobody is going to say thats all muslims are terrorists. But Al Quaeda dont wear holy crosses so you can understand why they dont say this should be banned because its not a christian or jewish group who are plotting against western countries.

    well, why not?

    just because they're religious doesnt mean they're trying to convert you. in fact it probably has little / nothing to do with what youre learning about.

    would you object to being served in a shop / restaurant by someone wearing a headscarf ? or a cross?
    i feel better wen some1 religious serves/teaches me, no matter wot religion it is, it just shows that we can live together

    Edders, great minds think alike. And as I agree with you, at least a bit of your mind is great.

    the lack of religious influence is, actually, a religion in itself... i dont believe kids should be detatched from cultures or parts of the world simply because it would be considered religious influence-- in history what would they say? "...and in medieval times in europe they were christians but we cant tell you any part of their belief structure because that would be influencing your personal spiritual life."

    no, thats called teaching. religious influence is letting authority figures display religious symbols that kids can look up to as a 'good example'. obviously theres nothing wrong with having muslim teachers, but letting them wear head scarves does seem to violate the idea that kids should be free to form their own ideas about which religion (or lack of one) is right for them.

    No you just say, back in the dark ages when people needed direction, someone thought it would be a good idea if we invent a character that made us all (god) and if you're nice to each other you'll see him when you die. Kids will believe that. They believe in Father Christmas so telling them that twaddle will be... childs play.

    how about sportsmen; should they conceal their religions too (although, few sportsmen seem to be actively religious)? kids look up to them too! and in films and games, we all know how children follow what they see on tv(!)

    seriously though, do you think many children will want to convert religion because they saw their teacher wearing a headscarf?

    i reckon its quite unlikely.

    in anycase, children that are younger (primary school age) usually a) have a religion [from home] b) don't care about religion

    older children usually a)have a religion [from home] b)can choose themselves c)don't care about religion.
