Why on earth do you want to make “martyrs” of girls in head scarves? What’s different about Orthodox Jewish boys in kippahs, or Sikh boys in turbans? We have both at The Mine, and girls next door in scarves. No-one worries about it. The clash of civilisation does not break out. It’s not an act of defiance because it is allowed. The school uniform is not breached by these religious exceptions, even though God knows why we have these stupid archaic uniform rules in the first place.
