Yes it seems a sword in a school would be outlandish.
Lets first go back and realize the thread title here is rather misleading.
All I could see was a sheath about 5 inches, certainly was not a sabre.
That being said, it's a bad idea for any weapons of any kind to be in schools.
A small religious symbol which resembles a dagger like this is not the same as a sabre.
Perhaps our rules on "something that resembles a weapon" need to be addressed.
Let's remember that ROTC in high schools have guns that don't actually fire. They definitely resemble however.
In the end I would suggest that if there is a bladeless, harmless Kadr which symbolizes the real one, then it would be a lot closer to OK.
With a blade, absolutely not.
