BURKE, Va. (AP) – A high school student in northern Virginia says a teacher pulled her hijab from her head, prompting the school system to put the teacher on leave.

The student posted on Twitter that she was infuriated by the actions of the teacher Wednesday at Lake Braddock Secondary School in Burke, Virginia.

Fairfax County Public Schools said in a statement Thursday that the teacher’s action was inappropriate and unacceptable. The schools said the teacher has been put on leave while the headscarf incident is investigated.
