Isn’t Cobb county an upscale suburb of Atlanta? Figures this PC trash would be in a public school.

It’s national, the NEA and public schools are in league with the most perverted elements of society to brainwash kids.

There’s a good way to fight the Islam learning center: Back it 100% because it believes in killing homosexuals and abortionists.

do that and watch the liberals back off in a hurry.

“On Friday afternoon, Regan got an email statement from a Cobb Schools saying the school district didn’t create the materials, they were provided by the state.”

Where did the state get these materials? The U.S. Dept of Islamification?

Trying to relate this to school uniforms, the context they put it into, doesn't make much sense to me," parent Hal Medlin said.

I'm glad I never had any kids. The Progressive nanny state, at the point of a gun, delivers children into the hands of morons and degenerates.This will not stand under its own weight.

Well some of Cobb is great and some not so great. This is the first I have heard of promoting this Muslim crapola in Georgia schools. A classic case for shuttering the Dept of Education.

They don’t even teach this crap in Europe where Islam has made deeper inroads into society, so they say.

Perhaps America should take a good look into he mirror and realize the exceedingly rapid spread of Islam into this country.

The Georgia 'educators' saying this was about school dress policy is really rich - as if they expect us to believe 13 year old girls wearing burqas in public schools is realistic.

The responsible parties for this dreck should be fired.

I'm waiting for Conservatives to finally realize that like government healthcare, government schools are a socialist institution. First point, socialism is unreformable. Second point, why would you dream that a socialist institution would teach freedom of thought, free market economics, honest American history, western civilization and patriotism.

Abolish government schooling. Permanently! **ALL** of it.

Government schools are godless and teach children to think and reason godlessly. They children must if they are to cooperate in the classroom.

Government schools are socialist-funded. Simply by attending children learn to be comfortable with government force. That government force takes money from a neighbor to give them tuition-free school. Well?...Why not use the voting mob and government force to get money for lots of free stuff?

Government schools violate every First Amendment Right and teach children to be compliant prisoners of the state. Government schools crush free speech, free press, free assembly, free exercise of religion, and establish the government religion of atheistic secular humanism.

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

How many public schools around the nation are also promoting Islam?

Well it is part and parcel of their agenda...to win over teachers first and foremeost..who influence the leadership in the educational system as well as the students. So would be no surprise, along with Obamas educational czar and the outreach to Muslems, which is actually their outreach to us..... that this is being snuck into many schools.

The Islamic Khan Perry extols as his friend and partner has much to say about "educating the students in becoming "global citizens".....

Education and development - have been at the heart of my own work over the past fifty years, .....the fundamental value of a universal human bondrequires and validates our efforts to educate for 'global citizenship'. .... our strategy begins with good teaching. We must first teach the teachers........Together, we can help 'reshape the very definition of a well educated global citizen'. And we can begin that process by bridging the learning gap which lies at the heart of what some have called a Clash of Civilizations, but which I have always felt was rather a Clash of Ignorances....... Moving beyond the Judeo-Christian cultures where it is most experienced, it will have to make educators in other areas of the world into its newest stakeholders. ....This will probably mean developing more explicit expressions of a cosmopolitan ethic, founded if possible in universal human values. That may well be a progressive, ever evolving process.

Aga Khan: And we can begin that process by bridging the learning gap which lies at the heart of what some have called a Clash of Civilizations, but which I have always felt was rather a Clash of Ignorances.......

It's not ignorance's Mr Khan. The civility of man can be corrupted by the uncivilized. In the matter of your religion sir, it's far from civilized. And it would take an ignoramus to not see it. The swtoning, beheading, and flying jet liners into towers, killing thousands of innocents, demonstrates a total incivility toward human kind.

Perry is Khan's friend because Khan gives him mega dollars. Of course Khan expects something in return. For Khan's dollars donated to Perry, he got his fantasy curriculum introduced into Texas schools.

I was pleased to see Cain beat Perry in the Florida straw poll. At least the folks in Fla may have figured out what a Khan Perry is.

Good catch caww.

I thought it was a good catch too! .......I wanted to see for myself just what this so called Islamic friend of Perrys was about.

Best way to do that is to see what they are actually saying to their own...not necessarily to their US “friends” ....for it is almost a given what they say and do here is very different then what they “preach” to the Muslim world.

You are exactly right Khan gave Perry bucks and not only that but the very Muslim Community Center Perry layed the first block to claims they are the “Miniret to the West”..and we know what their Minierts mean to Muslims...

You cnnot do business with Islamic leaders, no matter how moderate they claim they are, without agreeing to impliment Islamic teachings into those communites they’re creating “seperate” communities in. It goes with the deal.

The mask is coming off Perry....though it’s pretty obvious the guy is a full fledged globalist...and teaming up with those of like minds.

I think Americans understand this election is serious business despite the Pres. announcing we don't care about what's happening or have understanding of it. The only ones with their heads in the sand are those who still believe in the phoney they elected...and many of them are realizing they made a grave mistake for believing this jerk.

Honestly, why is anyone surprised by this? The entire government educational system is inherently rotten to the core, promoting the twin satanic evils of Marxism and Islam.

“Honestly, why is anyone surprised by this? The entire government educational system is inherently rotten to the core, promoting the twin satanic evils of Marxism and Islam.”

I knew they promoted Islam in Texas public schools, thanks to Perry and his best bud Aga Khan. But I was shocked to see Islam being promoted in Georgia public schools.

There is major conflict public schools must address at some point. Since public schools also promote gay and lesbian pride. Teaching it’s perfectly ok for little Susie to have two mommies or two daddies. While teaching Islam is a warm fuzzy peaceful religion.

How will they explain to Susie that in Islam, gays and lesbians are often put to death? They need to be prepared, since one day in the future, little Susie might ask, why did those peaceful warm and fuzzy all over Muslims kill both my moms?

This question comes to mind; are Muslim groups giving money to school systems to promote this junk? Are Muslims giving these materials to school free of charge to supposedly teach the “truth” about Islam from the source—Muslims themselves? People who do not fully understand the dark side of Islam might be taken in by some friendly looking, “moderate” Muslims offering the schools free books on Islam. Perhaps it even goes further than that, they may have offered gifts to the school district.

There has been controversy about corporations providing educational material to school which has an advertising effect on kids. This may be something like that but with Muslims proporting to offer education about Islam. In addition to “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts”, we will have to add “Beware of Muslims bearing gifts.”
