Students were given the assignment to write the Shahada in Arabic script, in their World Geography class. I found this on Ace of Spades.
Loved one response:
[Side note: for the life of me, I can't figure out why Ace isn't picked up as unacceptable on the work blocking software. But, I'm glad it isn't.] PJ Media reports the district response:
Augusta County School Board and Dr. Bond appreciate parents bringing concerns directly to our attention, and a constructive and respectful dialogue between school and community is always welcome. As we have emphasized, no lesson was designed to promote a religious viewpoint or change any student’s religious belief. Although students will continue to learn about world religions as required by the state Board of Education and the Commonwealth’s Standards of Learning, a different, non-religious sample of Arabic calligraphy will be used in the future.Is there anyone so naive as to believe that self-serving statement (other than a Liberal)?
OF COURSE the curriculum is designed to separate the Believers from their heritage! At least, the Christian Believers. That's the whole point of a Modern Progressive Education (trademark pending). It's a Virtual Democratic Manufacturing Machine! (trademark refused).
