School Gives Islam Special Preference by Celebrating World Hijab Day

The World School of Inquiry in Rochester, New York recently decided to prop Islam up above all other religions at the school with mostly Christian students. In addition, there was no vote on the matter, nor were many parents informed.

Just one student, Eman Muthana, asked Principal Sheela Webster to get the school to participate in World Hijab Day. The principal happily obliged. On that day, 150 headscarves were provided to the girls on campus. They wanted the Westerners to “experience how women who wear the hijab are treated by others."

The announcement was made through a last-minute robocall that most parents didn't answer. It's odd that other forms of communications weren't used. When parents found out about it, they were rightfully angry.

Parent Jim Farnholz wrote on Facebook, “As a high school teacher for over 30 years, let me say that this is wrong on so many levels. All religions are taught in our global studies classes. That being said, that is where understanding, tolerance and the good and bad of religion and history are taught. This, however, is a clear violation of separation of church and state.”

Webster responded, “Our perspective in it was not religious — it was really about experiential." That may be true if the hijab wasn't a religious statement. Eman argued, “They can say whatever they want, I’m proud of who I am and I’m standing for who I am.”

A district spokesman consulted with an attorney stating that there would be more issue for the district had they not allowed this particular religious event. It seems Islam can penetrate schools by calling it a lesson in “history and multiculturalism.”
