A high school in Colorado will make female students who are enrolled in their world religion class wear head coverings during an upcoming field trip to a Mosque in Denver.

A notice from the school to the parents of these girls stated the following "We will be visiting the Denver Mosque, the Assumption Greek Orthodox Cathedral, and the Rodef-Shalom Synagogue,”.

It then went on to say the following: THERE IS A DRESS CODE FOR THIS TRIP All students must wear appropriate long pants. Ankles must be covered. Girls must bring wide scarves or hooded sweatshirts for the mosque.” 

Interesting since public schools typically are not allowed to treat boys and girls differently and in this case for religious reasons.

Yes you should note that I said public high school and religious reasons.  Interesting is it not?

I say that the Mosque can have any rules, as long as they are legal, they want.  But the students should not be marked down if they choose not to go on the field trip to the mosque.

What are your thoughts about this?

Would you allow your daughter to go to the Mosque, know she must cover her head?
