A Tricky issue indeed..

Hi, I’ve just been on the phone with one of my friends who I’ve known for 35 years, He is a school teacher at a mixed secondary, He teaches all three Sciences and he was telling me there is a situation that is getting very tense in the school of a 12 year old girl who is from Egypt, she moved to the uk just weeks ago & her parents who have demanded that she MUST sit only with other girls,

Where it has become tense is that the fact that all the classes are mixed and that the parents of the girl have now started to dictate to the teachers and the Head how much space/distance they should be between their child and the boys when sat in the class? This is becoming a very large issue in the school and it has the potential to be much larger due to the amount of other Muslims getting on board, I can see this getting out of hand...

This is only as difficult as the teaching staff choose to make it. The parents of the child in question should be told in no uncertain terms that they are now living in the UK. In this country we do not segregate pupils according to gender race or religion.

They should be advised that if they are unable to follow the customs which apply to life in this country they should remove their child from the school and themselves from the country!

These parents should be told that they are being sexist and there are laws against that in this country

" In fact, its a matter for the head teacher in the first instance"

That it may well be, but what happens after that. The head teacher and no doubt the board of governors would be involved, also the local education department or committee would be overseeing the events on any decision making?.

In my area, the local city and county councils are well able to deal with situations like this, especially when it comes to allocating spaces in schools for special needs or requirements.

If this school is having such trouble with this issue, why has the Daily Mail not got involved? Right up their street I would have thought, unless even they think there is no 'story' in it .

"I noticed a lot of non-Scotish"

I was in Glasgow south side yesterday.

If you noticed me you should have said hello.

Ahhh the good old spurious 'damned immigrants' story.

White Anglo Saxon Foaming at Mouth checklist:-

Story about people clearly not from around here - check Ideally Muslim/Gypsy - check Over here making use of our tax paid services - check Telling us what to do in our own country - check

Did you know they have removed the word 'gullible' from the dictionary

Rick'scafe it imho has nothing to do where they are from? it about having to change our lifestyle for a minority, that school has been doing things the way they have for many years i am sure & it also would of had many other muslim girls in there and no one has made any issues before?

So why should the school have to have to change its rules for someone thats not familiar with how the uk works? they should settle down and settle in before they start to throw their rule book at the school..
