Little attention is given to the ramifications of the proposal to ban Muslim headscarves in French schools. Will Muslim French girls simply attend school without their headscarves once that is the law? Either the policy will discourage attendance, leaving an already proportionately uneducated ethnic minority in France even less educated, or it will lead to the establishment of private Muslim schools where headscarves may be worn, thus institutionalising segregation, which is supposedly what the law seeks to prevent.
