To graduate with full honors from Stuyvesant High School, all students must complete a one-semester swim class or pass a swim test (“End of All-Girls Swim Class Causes Controversy at Stuyvesant High School,” The New York Times, Apr. 24). But some Muslim girls claim forcing them to do so violates their religious beliefs.
I say too bad. They knew about the requirement before they applied, but they did so anyway. Now they want the school to accommodate their beliefs. Choose another school that is more in line with their views.
