At the beginning of the week, my son started his first day of second grade. Today, I went in to meet his teacher when I dropped him off. She's Muslim and is wearing a headscarf.

Part of me is uncomfortable with it and wants him to switch teachers. I just feel it seems like religious propaganda or something for her to be wearing that in front of them. Our town is overwhelmingly Christian and I know I'm not the only parent to feel this way.

What would you do?

Nothing.

If the woman was Jewish or Christan and wore a head scarf, would you be uncomfortable as well?

Nothing. She shouldn't have to conform to your towns religious standards to teach. If she wants to wear her headscarf she should be aloud to.

I wouldn't do anything.

I think you are overreacting and it's rather telling of what kind of Christian you are.

You really are being ridiculous.... She's wearing a scarf on her head, she's Muslim.... What's the big deal? The fact she is Muslim, or the fact she wears a scarf?
