"Opening" this September in the "Big Apple" will be the first taxpayer funded Arab school. Enrollment from 500-600 sixth though twelfth graders will attend the school in which all classes will focus on Arab culture.

The nation’s first public school with a curriculum mostly dedicated to Arabic language and culture will open next fall in New York and American taxpayers will finance it.

Education officials say that although half the classes at the school will be taught in Arabic, they want to enroll a diverse student body.

My taxes funding this, I am speechless....

I for one am appaled at this. If there was a school dedicated to white people it would spark public outcry. I believe that each has their right to their own culture, way of life, and beliefs, but this is going too far. I think as Americans, our schools should speak ENGLISH, our history classes should teach AMERICAN history, and while other classes may be offered, they should be totally optional and not part of an American curriculum. I would be furious to see my tax dollars being spend to fund an arab school, or any school for that matter that only caters to one specific culture group.
