A new initiative in Saudi Arabia aims to root out extremist teachers and 'reeducate' them away from terror.
Israel is not the only place that supervises teachers and lecturers for fear they will impart the wrong kind of knowledge. Perhaps Israeli education officials should be sent to Saudi Arabia to a study a recently introduced program known as "ideological security," whose purpose is to cleanse the educational institutions of the hidden agendas of teachers in the school system.
The program is already bearing fruit and some 2,000 teachers have been fired or transferred to administrative positions out of fear they were inculcating the youth with dangerous content.

We need to “cleanse” our educational systems....but there’s nobody big enough to carry that shovel and clean out the crap they’re teaching our kids.
“some 2,000 teachers have been fired or transferred to administrative positions out of fear they were inculcating the youth with dangerous content.”
I wish “Catholic” schools would do the same...
We need to completely scrap public education and start from scratch. Half (?) the student body should probably be in prison or deported and the other half should be forced to learn subjects that actually have some significance.
Can you use these dedicated holy warriors to rescue America's failing schools?
I won’t argue with that! My son and his wife are really concerned if they can continue sending their daughters to public schools it has gotten so bad. They are in the Pittsburgh area, which is “ruled” by Democrates so you can imagine!
I’m with you.
I’m sure liberals would love to cleanse our schools and get rid of what’s left of those constitutional hacks.
I was refreshed to learn that my son’s last history teacher idealized the Articles of Confederation, farther right than even me. I didn’t think anyone like that would be permitted a teaching job in a public school, let alone be allowed to teach history. I’d hate to see guys like that get the boot.
