MANSFIELD (CBSDFW.COM) Some Students at Mansfield ISD schools could soon be learning Arabic as a required language. The school district wants students at select schools to take Arabic language and culture classes as part of a federally funded grant. The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education. As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School. The program would also be optional for students at T. A. Howard Middle School and Summit High School.

Why are American citizens allowing this crap to happen?
OUR tax money, no less.
I’d like to invite this school superintendent out back ‘for a smoke’ - - if you know what I mean.
The parents were not told about it until the school board decided to do it. They knew the parents wouldn't have allow them to do it, so they jumped first so that they couldn't be stopped. Pathetic.
When I was a lad in the 1980s, Japanese was supposed to be THE language to learn. Then, in the 1990s, it was Spanish, and later with the rise of the EU, French or German. Lately, it was Mandarin.
Learn how to beg for a few hundred billion dollars and you can become the Secretary of Treasury.
Why would Texans speak Arabic? What the hell are they going to do with that? It makes no sense.
They should learn Spanish if anything. Sheesh
That school board needs to be shown the door..... If I were a parent of one of those kids....I’d yank them from the school system.
If they want the language of the future they should consider Chinese.
P.S. Liberals, I hate you.
Texas, eh? Interesting...
No Latin, French, Spanish - but Arabic - along with acculturation indoctrination
SCHOOL VOUCHERS NOW!
Wrong. Language of the DISTANT past.
What’s wrong with these people in Texas?
In the late 60’s in Texas, Russian was the big deal. I ended up with a minor in it as a result. The feds give away our money, and the schools snap it up. If the feds said to teach Urdu these idiots would do it just to get the funding. It’s all a racket to impose the leftist agenda. The message in the 60’s was, “the Russians are taking over, get ready.” Now it’s the Muslims who are taking over in the eyes of the left.
They are always ready to be taken over, but never ready for liberty and personal responsibility. Leftists need to be excised from our education system or it is doomed.
LOL. Thats what we californians were saying 35 or 40 years ago.
Hello: as-salam alaykum
Response: my-salam abigga than yo salama
Not that I think the public schools should mandate learning Arabic, there is a real need for Arabic translators in the State Department, Military, Intelligence agencies, ...
Non Muslim Arabic speakers would be a real security enhancement.
