Vote: Should teachers be allowed to wear a veil?

Muslim women at a market in London

An argument has broken out after a Muslim teaching assistant was suspended because she wouldn't remove her veil in some lessons.

Aishah Azmi, 24, works at a junior school in Dewsbury and said she was happy to take off her veil in front of children, but not other men working at the school.

Some people think she should be made to remove her veil in school at all times, but others think it should be her choice.
