Schools have final say on uniforms, including hijab – Supreme Court
The Supreme Court has overturned a Court of Appeal ruling allowing Muslim students to wear hijabs in school.
In a triumph for the Methodist Church of Kenya, the court in a majority decision on Thursday said the ruling by the Appellate Court was against the school uniform policy.
The judges ruled that every school has a right to determine its rules.
The church, which sponsors St. Paul’s Kiwanjani Secondary School in Isiolo, appealed against the Court of Appeal decision.
A parent had complained about the suspension but the High Court sided with the school.
