Reader comment on item: Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy – An Islamist Charter School in Minnesota?
in response to reader comment: Rebecca you were part of it

Contrary to being a part of it, we were only visitors in Egypt. And the school my daughters attended was a privately funded international school with absolutely no religious agenda for any religion, including Islam. There were students from many different countries, but most from the US. If I had felt that there was any leaning to any one religion, I would not have allowed my daughters to attend that school. The publicly-funded Muslim schools in this country have their own agenda to promote Islam---that is the difference.
