Texas District Apologizes for Comments on Hijabs
A Houston-area school district is apologizing after an administrator told Muslim students they need to obtain permission from an imam to wear hijabs in school.
The Fort Bend district said in a statement last week that students at Bush High School in Richmond were given "misinformation" about needing documentation in order to wear a headscarf in school.
The district said in its statement that documentation is not needed to wear a headscarf for religious purposes.
