Flanders: Review of headscarves policy

Flanders: Review of headscarves policy

Following the debacle in the Antwerp Atheneum, the state education agency decided to review its standpoint regarding headscarves.

Currently schools can decide on their own if their students and teachers may wear a headscarf or not during class.

Often only the teachers of life-conviction [ie, religion] classes may wear the religious symbol.
