This is a debate we are conducting in the AWL in the run up to our conference.

Our existing policy decided in relation to the French ban on the hijab/veil in schools is printed above. It opposes that ban.

Indeed our existing policy is not to support bans on the hijab in any context.

This is not a debate about policies for the whole of society, or for adult society, but about schools.

Therefore comments about what *women* chose to wear, or not wear, are irrelevant to this discussion. As are comments about general bans.

Thank you.
