Girl, 16, banned from school for wearing hijab in Spain.

She sounds like a remarkably ungrateful brat. Her school only has her best interests at heart. She should be down on her knees thanking them for taking such an interest in her freedom.

How can anyone, especially the beneficiaries of such kindness, fail to recognize that when the government forces women out of school, work, and public life for refusing to change their religious beliefs, they're liberating them from oppression?

The government knows what's best for her. By expelling her from school, the administration is breaking the patriarchal chains that have kept women in Muslim countries uneducated and unable to make their own choices. And they're also showing her classmates as well that these values--equality, freedom--are important.

Why she doesn't understand all this, I have no idea.
