So far out of bounds, it boggles the mind!

Reader comment on item: 'Become a Muslim warrior'

Submitted by Charlene Hancock (United States), Jul 3, 2002 at 08:57

As a former elementary teacher in Ky. where we led the way in the Outcome-Based Education with KERA (which is the main reason I retired the first day that I legally could), I will tell you that nothing close to this would be allowed about Christians in the public schools.

This is so far out of bounds, that it boggles the mind.

They have political trouble over Christmas break (now called Winter Break), Easter, Thanksgiving, and even Mother's and Father's Day.

Compared to what we used to do--it is amazing. There used to be two elementary school units-Christmas Around the World that compared customs from around the world in celebration of Christmas which usually brought in the Jewish customs. We also had an upper elementary school comparative unit of the religions that was very basic but very straight forward---this religion believes this, and this religion believes that, etc.

The fact that the teachers and the administrators thought nothing was wrong with this unit about Islam is very telling.

And if it is true that the text breaks down to the use of "we," that is extremely telling as well. Sounds like somebody allowed Muslims to write the units and the lessons to me.

Keep up the good work. Enjoy seeing you on tv.
