A three-year legal battle over a Muslim schoolgirl's right to wear head-to-toe traditional dress goes before the British House of Lords Monday.
Shabina Begum accused the head teachers and governors of Denbigh High School in Luton, Bedfordshire, of denying her the "right to education and to manifest her religious beliefs."
She had been barred from coming to school in a jiljab, a full-length gown that covers the body and hair, the London Guardian said.
The case has had repercussions for schools in many areas of England.
