State Education Requirements

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

Submitted by Frank K. Hoover (United States), Apr 24, 2007 at 17:33

Greetings,

Will the Islamic Kahlil Gibran school be used to replace the usual required Public School requirements.? If so, shouldn't the State require it to fulfil the State requirements? If so, cannot the State be informed on just that is being taught or not taught in the school.? Would such disclosure to the state be an effective control ?

AND/OR

If this is to be considered as an Islamic Parochial School, shouldn't the state be required to be sure that the "Religious" content was not undermining Law and Order and that the states eductational requirements were met?

OR

If the islamc school pupils fulfil all the Public School requirements in Public Schools will it seek a tax exempt status? And if so can the exemption be dependent of whether its teaching meets the above Law and Order requirements.

The ramblings above are just meant to raise several notions on how we might avoid some of the negative results mentioned Dr. Pipes article.
