I blame John Ashcroft for this incredible limitation of freedom of religion and expression
No, really, I do. This is absolutely all of his fault:

"A sixth-grade Muslim girl in Oklahoma can wear a head scarf to school under a settlement between the school district and the Justice Department, officials announced Wednesday.

The six-year agreement, filed in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma, also requires the Muskogee Public School District to change its dress code to allow exceptions for religious reasons.
'This settlement reaffirms the principle that public schools cannot require students to check their faith at the schoolhouse door,' said R. Alexander Acosta, assistant attorney general for civil rights. "
