Queensland's Council of Parents and Citizens Association says it should not matter if a student wears religious dress to school or not.
The state's Anti-Discrimination Commission is investigating whether Ormiston College discriminated against a 12-year-old Brisbane student by not letting him wear his turban.
P&C state president Margaret Black says education is a much broader issue than the uniform worn.
"We believe that every child has a right to an education that children have the right for an equal opportunity in all areas regardless of their race, their gender," she said.
"We would be very surprised if a student was not allowed into a school just because of their religious dress." [Link]
