A quick look at the curriculum from the book in question

Reader comment on item: Spreading Islam in American Public Schools

Submitted by Eric Elnicki (United States), Feb 28, 2005 at 14:02

I decided to take a look a the syllabus of the course in question:


6 chapters on Europe, and Five on Islam. There are no references to the wars of conquest that spread Islam, or to the clash of Islam and Christianity, just the crusades. Going out on a limb, I'm betting that honor killings and the subject status of women won't be covered.

One other thing: I don't care what subject it might be, but parents have the right and duty to see what their child is being taught.
