Student Allowed To Bring Religious Knife To School
[su_right_ad]The knife is allowed because it’s part of the Sikh religion.
One of the most prominent traditional elements of the Sikh faith is the carrying of a Kirpan, a sword or dagger.
Several weeks ago, a Sikh family approached Gildo Rey Elementary school and notified the school that their young son would be carrying a Kirpan every day…
A volunteer from a different school, however, expressed considerably less enthusiasm for the idea of a student carrying a knife.
“There’s no way I’d go back until the knife was gone,” said Shelby, who asked that her last name not be used.
“They can’t take that thing into an airport. TSA would be all over it. Why is a school any different?” she added.[su_csky_ad]
