from jihadwatch:

"The lesson on Islam was taught in a world geography class at Lumberton High School. The teacher brought burqas and other Islamic clothing for the female students to wear. They were also assigned to write an essay based on a Washington Post story that blamed Egypt’s troubles on democracy – instead of the Muslim Brotherhood.

"'I am outraged,' one of the parents, who asked not to be identified, told Fox News ...

"The parent said she was not aware of the lesson until she discovered a photograph of her 14-year-old daughter wearing a burqa on Facebook ...

"'I felt like the line had been crossed,' she told Fox News.'Christian kids who want to pray have to do it outside of school hours – yet Islam is being taught to our kids during school hours ...'

"The young girl’s father wondered why the teacher was giving children lessons about Islam in a geography class.

"'She went from learning about Mexico to learning about Russia to learning about Islam,' he said.'Islam is not a country. Islam is not a continent.'"

Islam is not a race, either, yet msulims often play that card.

This is tantamount to brainwashing. Anyone who excuses the excesses of Islam because it is a religion needs their morals examined.

From the article:

The parents said they immediately contacted the principal of the high school who defended the program and said it was required under CSCOPE – a controversial electronic curriculum system that provides online lesson plans for teachers.

“The principal told me it was world geography and they have to learn this stuff,” she said.

However, the school district said the lesson taught at the high school was not part of written CSCOPE lesson.

“This is the normal answer from every school using CSCOPE,” said Janice VanCleave, a vocal critic of the program and the founder of Texas CSCOPE Review.“They are definitely promoting the Islamic religion.”

About CSCOPE:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSCOPE_ (education)

After complaints about its secret nature (including criminal penalties for releasing its content), and Social studies lessons (calling the Boston Tea Party terrorism [7]) Texas has announced significant changes [8]in CSCOPE including:
More controvery with CSCOPE. Students being taught a biased version of Islam.

~~~~~~~~~~

Criminal penalties? That could only be regulated and enforced by the government - the same bloody government that is supposed to keep religion out of public schools.

Also from wikipedia: The system is a product of an increased emphasis on accountability in public education over the last two decades.[6]

~~~~~~~~~~

So where is the accountability for CSCOPE? Why are they HIDING their curriculum??? Time for Texas parents to pull their children out of school until such time as Texas drops this nonsense and stops pushing islam in our tax payer funded schools.

To get this info from wikipedia, run a search on their site for CSCOPE and choose the education link.

The wearing of burqas is the same wearing of a religious symbol as wearing a crucifix. Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

Not even close. In Western society, only criminals cover their faces.

A crucifix can't be used to hide identity. The burqa hides the identity. This has already been used here.

I never thought I'd say this, your allah did one thing right. He didn't give you any kids, especially daughters. You would be the most disgusting parent on the whole planet. Good thing Patty kicked your sorry ass to the curb. Face it Fontaine, you hate all women because you failed at marriage, you are a failure with women, they all hate you. And of course you failed at life. You should be deported from the USA, TRAITOR!!!

If I was one of the parents, I'd march right in that class room and bitch slap that so called teacher. And I wouldn't care if that bitch would sue me. Enough is enough. We need to stand our ground against that brainwashing PC crowd.

This teacher should be immediately terminated and sent to Gitmo for "re-education". Hopefully she is a muslim. The non-muslim, liberal apologists that do these kind of thing are far far more sickening.

A g string bikini is freedom of choice for an adult. There is no freedom of choice for adults in most muslim countries.

I wouldn't allow my daughter to wear a G-string bikini or a burqua. The comparison is absurd. Our religion or lack thereof does not force women to dress in bags or strings.

That's nice now go live your life with your rulings and let others do the same.

Did you ever stop to think that many Muslim woman enjoy wearing the burqua by choice?
Who are you to demonize them?
There was a time not too long ago American women had to cover themselves from head to foot, not allowed to show their bare ankles or necks.
And before that it was the Victorian era that said a woman should be fully covered from foot to neck.
.
You people are making yourselves look very foolish and illiterate in front of the world viewers that read here.

'Texas public schools have come under fire again. This time, a teacher allegedly encouraged high school girls to dress up in full-length Islamic burqas and then instructed the entire class that Muslim terrorists are actually freedom fighters.'

'The controversial lesson came from a lesson plan provided by CSCOPE, an all-embracing, online K-12 educational curriculum used in 80 percent of the school districts in Texas. A rapidly growing chorus of critics charges that CSCOPE is a radical, backdoor way for progressives to circumvent both the Texas legislative process and the desires of local school boards and communities.(Ten shocking things CSCOPE is teaching kids in Texas)'

'Apparently, no mention was made of the fact that women in Saudi Arabia and Iran must wear the garment under threat of arrest and criminal punishment.'

'Here are the updates:

Although Texas CSCOPE has had major issues because of Islam lessons in schools, this Muslim Burqa lesson was NOT part of CSCOPE, and it a lesson that Lumberton ISD has been doing for years.

One parent contacted me and said that he pulled his kids out of Lumberton schools 2 years ago because of this exact Islam lesson.

Another parent contacted me and told me that their child had to go to the Principal's office this morning and sign a letter saying that they were not forced to wear the Burqas. The parents are upset that they were not asked to be present when their minor child was told to sign a legal form. One parent got a lawyer who said the school was in violation for not letting the parent be present.

It was confirmed that this was a geography class and not a history class.

State Senator Dan Patrick has today called for an investigation into this lesson.

It was also confirmed by a parent this morning that the students were not FORCED to wear the Burqas but they were brought as part of the lesson, and students were asked to try them on. Here is the worst part though: it was also confirmed that the students were told to call terrorists 'freedom fighters' and also the students were taught that Burqas are really just a fashion, and the students were not taught that they are a form of oppression, and women can even be put to death for not wearing one. Also, it was confirmed that the students were asked to do a report on Egypt that portrayed democracy as bad.-
