Germany reverses Hijab ban for Muslim teachers

Germany’s highest court will lift the ban on headscarves for teachers, correcting a 2003 verdict. It follows an appeal made by two female Muslim teachers from Northrhine-Westfalia.

The verdict now reads that the headscarf can only be banned if the peaceful situation at the school is in danger – for example if parents are protesting against it.

The court ruled that as Christian symbols are still allowed by many regional school laws, headscarves should not be banned.
