I am the father of a seven year old girl. I would be shocked and saddened to ever discover her being taught by a woman in a burka or other form of repressive dress. As a culture, Americans of all stripes should resist temptations to appease minority concerns (from all faiths) when they would result in a step backwards for the rights of women and girls in the public sphere. Here is a test. If the faith dictates behavior along gendered lines, we don’t want it. Express yourself in your private life not in our children’s.
