  French law on secularity and conspicuous religious symbols in schools - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The law is an amendment to the French Code of Education that expands principles founded in existing French law, especially the constitutional requirement of laïcité: the separation of state and religious activities.
The law does not mention any particular symbol, though it is considered by many to specifically target the wearing of headscarves (a khimar, considered by some to be required as part of hijab ["modesty"]) by Muslim schoolgirls.
The law itself may not be challenged before French courts (since this would have warranted action before the Constitutional Council before the signing of the law); however, the courts may significantly curtail its application — especially given the inherent margin of appreciation of what is ostentatious or not.

 Commission Stasi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The French commission Stasi is a commission set up to reflect upon the application of the laïcité principle.
Named after the chair Bernard Stasi, ombudsman of the (French) Republic (médiateur de la République) since 1998, and consisting of 20 members, it was set up by the president of the Republic Jacques Chirac on 3 July 2003.
During this time, the commission interviewed various representatives from different groups, for example religious leaders, school headteachers, political leaders, equal-rights groups and social groups (for example the Ni Putes Ni Soumises), and eventually led to the introduction of the French law on secularity and conspicuous religious symbols in schools.

 Hijab
The word used in the Qu'ran for a headscarf is "''khimar''", which might be better to use when referring to headscarves in general, as many people argue that this use of "hijab" is incorrect, and it can certainly lead to confusion.
When used in news reports, for example the controversy over the French law on secularity and conspicuous religious symbols in schools, this is the meaning in which the word is being used.
See also: veil for a general description of headscarves and veils worn by both Muslim and non-Muslim women; and list of hats and headgear for a list of all kinds of veils.

 French law on secularity and conspicuous religious symbols in schools - Art History Online Reference and Guide
The Senate commission based its report on multiple sources: school representatives, headmasters, teachers; local associations, such as Ni Putes Ni Soumises or SOS Racisme ; representatives of the main religions; and leaders of human-rights organizations.
Similar debates on the education of girls in headscarves have long raged in secular-yet-Muslim Turkey; the European Court of Human Rights upheld the laws of Turkey, which are more restrictive than the French law [2]; it therefore seems highly unlikely it would declare the French law contrary to the Convention.
According to statistics from the French government [3], out of 12 million students, only 240 girls attempted to come to school with a veil; 170 agreed to take it off, and 70 conciliation procedures were started.
