Norway: Face veils to be banned in all schools

(Oslo) Norway has stated that it is going to ban the full veil in all educational institutions across the country, saying it hinders communication. The government had promised the ban last year, targeting the hijab, balaclavas, and masks. Torbjorn Roe Isaksen, the Minister of Education said:
"We do not want clothes covering the face in nurseries, schools and universities, these clothes prevent good communication, which is important for students to receive a good education."
The Norwegian media reports the government can count on the support of most parties and the bill is expected to pass in the spring of 2018. Expect a load of so called human rights protests in the future.
