    Some girls at French schools cram ir headscarf right at entrance gate to school in ir backpacks. Some Muslim leavers take ir graduation certificate with high heels and hairstyle and appear a few weeks later with high heels and headscarf to seminars at universities in Paris, Lyon or Nice. For almost 15 years, France has banned all religious symbols such as Muslim headscarves, Jewish tipper and Christian cross from kindergartens, elementary schools and all secondary schools. However, universities can visit women disguised.

    "The law works well," says Olivier Roy, a well-known French Islamic expert from European University Institute in Florence. Young Muslims were willing to compromise and would drop ir veil before class. And fear that Muslim parents would send ir children to Muslim schools because of ban would not have been true: today re are only ten Islamic schools in France – most Muslims visited state or above-average Often also Catholic private schools. Because religion as a whole is more widely accepted, says scientist. Apparently, y don't care about dropping veil for school.

    Muslim families have apparently accepted law; So far it has not been known that a pupil should have been warned. According to law, teacher should first talk to veiled girls and n let disciplinary penalties be followed, such as a class conference.

    The NRW government is not yet ready for such details. She's just discussing a headscarf ban at schools. However, it should only go to girls under age of 14. But debate has not yet been decided: while NRW Integration Commissioner Serap Güler is in favour of banning Muslims from making a decision as an adult woman, her German colleague Annette Widmann-Mauz, also CDU, opposes it. The quarrel over piece of cloth on head will not end so quickly, even this is a French lesson. Because fundamental question also does not answer a ban: What space we want to allow religions and Islam in society.

    In France, too, headscarf ban in year 2004 began a seemingly endless debate over Muslim symbols: in some municipalities, headmasters discuss wher parents may be veiled on excursions to museums or zoos, in ors it was about animators for The Ferienprogamm. The extreme right Front National complains every few months about alleged halal food in canteens, and every summer, some mayors enact bans on full-body veiling on beach, for which each city chief finds a different justification. Sometimes Burkiniträgerinnen are a "public nuisance", sometimes veil prevents a revival if Muslim is to be saved from water. The French example shows that anyone who starts to discuss religious clothing and veiling will rarely hear it again.
