Officials in Turkey are quietly easing bans on the wearing of Islamic headscarves at universities, The Wall Street Journal reported. The head of Turkey's Higher Education Board recently ordered Istanbul University to bar professors from kicking students out of classes. That move followed an incident where a professor ejected a student for wearing a hat (which is what some students wear instead of a head scarf). Students at the university report that they have been told that they may wear headscarves, and some women have started doing so.
