School bans girl with hair braids

It was never a question of "If?" but "When?" this school uniform nonsense would continue. Following the recent High Court decision that allowed a Muslim girl, Shabina Begum, to wear the jilbab at school despite the school's uniform policy that forbade it, a white girl is now complaining that her school is refusing to let her attend classes as her hair is braided whilst both a black pupil and pupil of mixed race are allowed to attend with braided hair. The school has offered to teach her in isolation whilst her father threatens court action!! I just wonder how much the court case will cost teh taxpayer and how much damages she will win for hurt pride?
