Flap over feds funding Arabic culture curriculum

Muslim

by Bill Bumpas
A pro-family attorney in The Lone Star State says Washington bureaucrats are “meddling” in local education by “forcing” schools to teach students about the Arabic culture.Texas EducationParents in a North Texas school district are upset that they were not notified until after the fact about a plan to require all students in a couple of schools to learn Arabic culture. Officials with the Mansfield Independent School District apologized to outraged parents at a recent meeting for not informing them of a mandatory curriculum change at Kenneth Davis Elementary School and Cross Timbers Intermediate School.

Mansfield was one of five school districts in the country to receive the Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) Grant, which identifies Arabic as a “language of the future.” The plan reportedly involves embedding Arabic culture in all facets of school activities, from discussing the Arabic roots of the word “algebra” to serving a Middle Eastern dessert at a class party. The Mansfield classes are part of a five-year, $1.3 million federal grant.

Kelly Shackelford, president and CEO of Liberty Institute, says Washington is obviously “forcing” onto a local school district something that was never part of the district’s plan.

“In other words, the local board…was trying to develop a curriculum that was best for the children [and] this wasn’t part of it,” says the Christian attorney. “And so to change that — because the federal government is trying to meddle — I think is a big mistake.

“And that’s what the parents are reacting to,” he adds. “That’s why they weren’t notified of this, because it was never in the plans.”

According to Shackelford, federal bureaucrats are inserting themselves into an arena best left to local decision-makers.

I know that school vouchers are on the list of things the new Republican House wants to “take on”. I hope it’s sooner than later. It sure would help many families that don’t want their kids to be subjected to the Department of Educations pro islam PC movement propaganda.

    Re-educating America starting with the kids. Adults will be sent to a special camp. Those who resist will be quietly herded to a local death camp in the name of compassion and tolerance….

    …unless people wake the fuck up and fight back now!

    the “(FLAP) Grant, which identifies Arabic as a “language of the future.”

    Goes with the obama plan to invent stuff and make stuff like windmills and trains to link California to New York…all this new stuff is like so cool!

    I guess if your first language is Arabic, this stuff is new!

    I hope the program teaches them about clitorectomies and honor killings, and possibly a demonstration of stoning an apostate wouldn’t be out of order; after all, the kids need to learn what the future has in store for them.

    Mansfield is southeast of Ft. Worth, and I have been hearing about this on local radio. I’m so afraid arabic will become a language of the future if this type of program is foisted on school districts as grant money and they don’t have the good sense to say no. The “FLAP” program should be called the “CRAP” program – cleverly rigged assistance program.

    Wonder if “American culture” is taught in any arabic schools?

    Uh, NO.

    Another Reason for School Vouchers: Homosexual Education Practices

    A teacher shows 12 year olds a graphic film about homosexuality and that’s just fine? Formerly Great Britain offers a homosexual curriculum to school kids? One would think the planet has entered Bizarro World.

    Actually, it has. More specifically, we’ve entered Queer World and anyone who has been harboring doubts as to whether homosexuals are in process of subverting public education and popular culture need only wake up and smell reality. That subversion is illustrated by two stories, one domestic, one foreign.

    Twelve year old Jessica Turner and her 7th grade classmates were treated to a change of educational pace at Ashburn Community Elementary School in Chicago. With good reason, substitute teacher Marnetta Buford advised her students that, “What happens in Ms. Buford’s class stays in Ms. Buford’s class.” She then presented the kids with a real happening when she showed the unsuspecting kids something their parents didn’t expect either, selected scenes from “Brokeback Mountain.”

    That 2005 film, which has been called “a romantic drama,” was described by IMDb as, ”A raw, powerful story of two young men, a Wyoming ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 sheepherding in the harsh, high grasslands of contemporary Wyoming and form an unorthodox yet life-long bond–by turns ecstatic, bitter and conflicted.”

    It is indeed a “raw” film in that the “unorthodox bond” began with the coupling of the two shepherds in their tent, a coupling graphically depicted on-screen.

    Jessica’s grandparents sued the teacher and the Chicago Board of Education for $500,000 due to the “severe emotional distress” suffered by their granddaughter. After a 3-day trial, a jury found for the teacher and the school board. The verdict was based on the determiniation that “the teacher’s behavior did not meet the ‘outrageousness’ standard of claims for intentional infliction of emotional distress” even though Ms. Buford chose to show the most explicitly homosexual scene in the R rated movie to 12 year olds.http://tiny.cc/g9snp

    A school board lawyer contended, “The sex scenes were not specially screened or specially highlighted. They were shown in the context of the movie as a whole.” The jury bought that argument despite the fact the film is 134 minutes long and Buford chose to show the kids the sex segment:

    How homosexual sex pertained to a math class and how showing an R rated film to seventh graders without their parents’ knowledge or consent is not considered “outrageous” in Chicago I guess is because “Brokeback,” not unsurprisingly, won numerous awards.

    Young Miss Turner and her grandparents may find some small comfort in that, as of now, there are no plans to show “Deep Throat” in Chicago public schools.

    Meanwhile, from across the Pond whence comes much of what American educational “progressives” believe and attempt to inculcate in the minds of schoolchildren, comes a new approach toward teaching math and other subjects: Create a context through which kids can be informed and instructed.

    Whether the subject is math or science or history or literature, what better contextual atmosphere could there be but homosexual life? . . .
