Is the Burka made from material that is appropriate to the hazards? (Flame resistant or water pro of)?
If so, I’d embra ce it.
It’s better than a lab coat!

Could others tell me how you deal with a student who
wears a Burka taking an organic chemistry class, or any lab class for that
matter? We certainly don’t want to discriminate religiously, s
o how do we deal with the safety issues of that.
Surprisingly this is the first time this situation has arisen for us.
