Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm sympathetic to the idea that teachers, who are in effect representing the state, should be banned from religious and political symbols or dress.

That is the most persuasive argument I've heard.

But I think there's still a problem with looking at the hijab as a symbol.
