The British Association of heads of schools and colleges, which includes about 18 thousand teachers proposed to revise the educational process in such a way that it became convenient for the students, fasting in the Holy Muslim month of Ramadan, writes the Daily Mail.
Because in this month believers refrain from food and water during the daytime, the British teachers fear that pupils will find it difficult to take a mandatory 16-year-old school exam (GCSE) on an empty stomach. In addition, the Association of heads of schools and colleges recommends the transfer, during Ramadan, the lessons of physical education and sport so that the fasting students had to comply with the sports rules.
The Association advises schools to provide students with prayer rooms, as well as to make sure that the classes in which they write their papers, are equipped with fans and air conditioning.
This year the Holy Muslim month of Ramadan begins on 27 may.
