A Colorado public school recently sent some of their students to a mosque on a school field trip to Denver. What they asked of their students is causing quite a stir.
EAG News obtained a parental notice sent out to the children’s guardians that stated:
“THERE IS A DRESS CODE FOR THIS TRIP: All students must wear appropriate long pants. Ankles must be covered. Girls must bring wide scarves or hooded sweatshirts for the mosque.”
In short, young girls need to be almost completely covered from head to toe. Some parents have taken issue with this.
It was an outraged parent who contacted the EAG News outlet. Only one radio broadcaster, Peter Boyles of KNUS 710, agreed to take on the story. Everyone else that the parent contacted refused. Boyles contacted the Principal Mike Loitz of Rocky Heights Middle School who was doing the trip. The Principal confirmed that the school asked students to comply to the dress code.
The field trip was a ‘world religion ‘ trip organized through the school. The students also visited a Greek Orthodox Church, and a Jewish synagogue. However, students were not mandated to wear a certain dress code to either of those places of worship. Some took umbrage with the dress code because of the fear that all Muslims endorse sharia law.
The trip, since done through a public school, is taxpayer funded.
