Hmmm.... I learned about Islam in the fifth grade... I guess 18 years ago, right here in Texas. Don't remember much except they have 5 pillars of faith. What they are I couldn't say. Needless to say I didn't end up blowing anyone up for Allah or anything. I also learned about Chinese culture such as dragons, letters, history and chop sticks.

Come to think of it they brainwashed me! Look at me now.... All tolerant of other people's cultures and less inclined to buy into the war hawk hyp. Dang...

All very well but do you think they need constant music that is emotive and spooky to some in that age group.

Not scared of a bunch of shelled out kids with AK's and no schooling, no.

Scared of extremism? Oh yeah. Last I checked, the world is full of it.

My daughter tells me it is spooky / scarey (sp) to her and creeps her out.

Would you not say that the music has a mystical element to it ?

That is all... as I wanted to put it out there , that the school has replaced her reading time with foreign religious music

The last time I checked muslims were doing better than any other group in that regard.

School is not the place for any religion.
Save that for the church or home.

Last I checked they have been getting bombed a lot. I imagine that doesn't help.

Sorry for thread drift. Anyway, I'll start worrying as soon as our kids come home praising Allah. Until then, the study of religions should remain in school. Especially if it encourages tolerance.

While all of that is quite valid, the fact remains that kids have better and more important things to learn than religion.


You're right and they do learn those "better and more important" things.

I think that the current educational system is sorely lacking in every way. I'm completely non-religious and I feel that if our world were without religion altogether it would be a vast improvement... but I'm 100% supportive of teaching kids about the various religions so they'll have a clue how the world works.


When other subjects are being cut, I'm just not comfortable introducing religious history.

There needs to be an overhaul of education in all of our countries, I think. Then we can fit in religious history.

It should be taught as any other verifiable history is taught. Should we ignore a part of human history because we might offend others? Should we not recognized Martin Luther? Constantinople? Greeks? Romans? Gandhi?
Those subjects have a back-history that is steeped in religion and it shouldn't be ignored. Grab your popcorn I guess.


Meanwhile,

A 2010 study by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) showed the U.S. history testing scores are "stagnant," with only 9 percent of fourth graders correctly identifying a photograph of Abraham Lincoln and stating two reasons for his importance. Lee White, executive director of the National History Coalition, says the problem stems from history's place in American curriculum.

"They've narrowed the curriculum to teach to the test. History has been deemphasized," he said. "You can't expect kids to have great scores in history when they're not being taught history."

There are only so many hours in a day. Maybe it could be offered as an elective to high schoolers, I took Greek mythology and it was fun.

I like to encourage them to learn multiplication.

Obamas true intentions could never be clearer.


I haven't read all the posts yet so you may have already answered it. Do you have a source for that statement? I mean if the shoe fits and all but what has he done to affect what is taught to our children in the public education system?

This article, found . ..HERE... states that the assignment, titled, "Introduction to Islam" was designed by CAIR. Which is the Council for American-Islamic Relations. The article also alleges that CAIR is a group "with known ties to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other terrorist organizations".

Thoughts?

Its not about learning a religion...it is learning about human and society history.


A valid point, but I think mathematics might be a tad more important than islam and anything to do with it.

So mathematics should be taught in every class? Only teaching one thing in school doesn't make for a well rounded education.


Can you please bloody find where I said that? I mean ffs buddy - find where I said that.

I think you know what I said, as well as what I meant and are just being unnecessarily antagonistic to members.

To re-quote you again.

A student needs to learn a variety of subjects for a well rounded education. So should they take multiple math classes instead of learning about other subjects? Islam has contributed quite a bit to the world helping to pull Europe out of the dark ages being just one thing. There is a lot of history that goes along with religion just because you have a thing against Islam is no reason for it's impact on the world shouldn't be taught in schools.

The article you quoted forgot to mention that the top five religions were being taught in the class. Will this mother complain when Christianity is being taught in her daughters class? I doubt it.

The linked article was posted, because several members (including myself) were curious as to where the assignment came from. It's obviously from a rather "right" leaning institution, which would explain the aforementioned omission. But, that does not detract from the FACT that, if the allegations are accurate, then someone's "got some 'splaining to do..."!

First your video is categorically incorrect. Any reference to an almanac will shed light on the bigoted propaganda you swallowed.

Moreover, if people are having less children it doesn't mean they will cease to exist, it means the population will decrease. That's a good thing.

Your fear of Muslims has been installed inside you by the global media agenda. You know nothing of Islam.

I can prove it...

Without googling please answer.

1. Who wrote the quran?

2. Who killed Muhammad?

3. Does it say in the quran to kill all non- believers?

4. What's the difference between quranic verses and hadiths?

5. Does the Quran support abrogation?

Islam is being attacked by western agenda. The fighting you see (not ISIS) is in direct response to the war being waged on Muslims. If American stayed out of Middle East there would be no war on Islam.

There are extremist Muslims. But there are also extremist Christians. Ie. Timothy McViegh and every KKK member. What if a global media outlet put KKK members and their lynchings on cnn? Exactly.

Btw, Saudi Arabia gas beheaded more people in last 6 months than all Islamic extremist combined.

Forget what you're told. Learn on your own.

I am not muslim btw.

I think fear is a strong word to use. How about, 'distaste' for some of their practices, instead?

By the way, Timothy Mcveigh didn't kill people in the name of any christianity.
