The woman in question is infact teaching in a English Christian School.
So for one i would not agree with her infringing her Muslim beliefs onto a Christian bunch of kids.
2 this women refuses to work with men
She is obviously strictly religious so do we really want someone with those beliefs teaching in a Christian school.
Can you post something that verifies this? A "Christian" school?
Ms Azmi said she had never received complaints from pupils at Headfield Church of England Junior School, in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, but was told her veil could not be worn in class.
2 this women refuses to work with men which means technically to say to all men in that school "you can work with her" would be sexual discrimination to the men. I know id rather have one women taking me to court for racial discrimination than 10 men taking me to court for sexual discrimination. I think the school is playing its cards right on this one.
Mr Woolas, a local government minister, told the newspaper that this amounted to sexual discrimination and called for her to be sacked.
Speaking later on the BBC's Politics Show he stopped short of repeating the call, but said he would defend the head teacher if Ms Azmi was sacked.
"The head teacher says that she's not able to do her job...and if the head teacher says that that's the action that needs to be taken, then so be it," he said.
Earlier, Kirklees Council said she was asked to take off her veil in class at Headfield Church of England Junior School because the children had difficulty understanding her in English lessons.
I'm confused... I can't find the following quote in the original link posted. This link must have been updated or something...
