Any teachers with Muslim kids out there?

Hi everyone!

I am a foreign correspondent working on a report about the use of burkini for swimming lessons in the cantons of Basel or Aargau.

It is being a very difficult task to get find teachers who have muslims kids in their class and may have encountered issues with their parents because of swimming lessons.

If anyone out there can help me on this, I would very much appreciate it!

PM for more details :-)

Thanks a lot in advance!

Perhaps because it not an issue, but I guess you could always make it one....

Re: Any teachers with Muslim kids out there?

I am not into fabricating news, if that is what you are implying.

For the Swiss press, Swiss politicians and some education professionals, it is an issue. Maybe you have not been reading the news lately... In case you are interested, you can have some more information on the topic here:

Meri, I'm not sure if you speak German, but there's another online community which has "journalist seeks" listings. You might have more joy putting an ad up there:
