Berlin court upholds ban on headscarves for public school teachers

Berlin court upholds ban on headscarves for public school teachers
A Berlin court upheld a law that prevents Muslim teachers from wearing headscarves in public schools.

The court in Berlin, a city-state in Germany, ruled that a state law prohibiting religious garb from being worn by teachers, police and court officials while on duty was constitutional.

The law had been challenged by a teacher who attempted to wear her headscarf while teaching at a primary school in 2015, according to the BBC. The woman argued that the Berlin law was unconstitutional because a federal court overturned a law prohibiting headscarves nationwide that year. But that ruling allowed states to create their own laws on the matter.
