Update from last night’s school board meeting:
“Mansfield ISD officials apologized to parents Monday night over a plan to teach Arabic culture in every class at one school.
Many parents said they hadn’t been told about the mandatory curriculum change.
Parents and teachers packed a Mansfield ISD school cafeteria to hear learn more about why Arabic language and culture could soon be embedded in everything their children learn.
Veronika Webb is a sixth-grader at Cross Timbers Intermediate School. Her parents adopted her from Russia when she was three years old. She had to learn English, but her language challenges weren’t over.
“She had to learn Spanish when she was in elementary school, and now they want her to learn Arabic,” said Bobbi Webb, Veronika’s mom.
The Mansfield ISD plans to use grant money to start a program that would look at almost every subject from an Arab perspective, but Monday was the first time they’ve explained it to parents.”
Parents and taxpayers must remain vigilant as our culture is attacked and we are expected to pay for it!
A must see for all who believe in Americanism.
I enough parents want an Arabic immersion education for their kids, let them start a charter. In my county, we now have a Hebrew immersion charter school.
How many of these students can read and write English correctly?
Parents shouldn’t let their kids become guinea pigs for any sort of crazy idea the local public school dreams up. Most parents don’t want a “madras” education for their children.
Complete waste of money, and it will be an epic failure if parents and students are not on board, and reading the comments under the article, I don’t think people are too happy with this.
This is the part that bothers me the most. More brain washing to cause sympathy for the Arabs
Grrr, I hate this ****. You want to bet that they’d undermine the history curriculum?
I’m not teaching that BS.
