Rotterdam High School Forbids Head Covering

It has only now become public knowledge that the Citycollege St. Franciscus High School in Rotterdam has forbidden head coverings at the school since the beginning of the 1990s. Among the 700 pupils 94% are non-Western immigrants. Catholic students are only allowed to wear a cross under their clothes. Zeki Arslan of the Multi-Cultural Institute Forum reacted to this information, saying that it won’t be long before a Moroccan or Turkish businessman might say to a woman employee: “I don’t like your blond hair. If you want to work here, you’ll have to dye it.”
