Teacher suspended for wearing veil
! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

A muslim woman has been suspended for refusing to remove her veil when teaching English.
Staff and pupils had complained that they found her hard to understand when she was wearing her veil. The school has a lot of children who speak English as a second language and they need to be able to see the teachers lips when learning the language.
The woman refused, has been suspended and has taken Kirklees council to a tribunal. The council says that even if the tribunal goes her way it won’t change its stance.
Even muslim children are complaining that the veil is a barrier to communication.
