Muslim Headscarves in Czech Schools

Unlike in most countries, in the Czech Republic religiously adherent people are a minority of the population. Thus, religious symbols appear in public space to a much lesser extent than in other countries. There are even attempts to push religious symbols out of the public space, especially symbols of religions that do not have a long tradition in the Czech territory. The legal reflection of these trends will be illustrated in a particular case of wearing the Muslim hijab in a public secondary school.
