A Muslim school will not allow girls to eat lunch until after boys have finished, an Ofsted chief has told MPs.
Ofsted is the U.K. Office of Standards in Education.
Al-Hijrah school in Birmingham is still segregating boys and girls despite a Court of Appeal ruling in 2017 that found it was unlawful, according to Luke Tryl, director of corporate strategy at Ofsted. … He said that Al-Hijrah school was enforcing a “very strict gender segregation” which included “denying the girls to have their lunch until the boys had had theirs.”
