Los Angeles Schools Teaching Islam


Conspiracy theorists are speculating that schools are indoctrinating students on Islam after reports of Muslim teachings being introduced into school curriculum. Parents are beginning to pull children out of classes. Determination: Real

It is true that parents of a boy who was enrolled at a Manhattan Beach Middle School pulled their son from the class because the school was teaching children the tents of Islam. This according to an October 31, 2014 news report by KTLA, a local independent Television station serving Los Angeles.

Parents were concerned that the school had crossed the line because up to this point religion was a forbidden subject in public schools. A concerned parent told KTLA, “The audacity of this school, to think that they can sit these children down and teach ’em whatever religion they please; it’s preposterous. This is illegal, basically. You can’t teach religion in schools any more, but apparently, in this particular school, at least, that’s not the case.”

The parent suggested to imagine what would be the national response if children were to bring home an assignment that told them to write down John 3:16 or the Ten Commandments.

According to a September 19, 2013 article found posted on the website of Renew America, the teachings of Islam has made its way into the curriculum known as "Common Core."

The article said:

Writer Tabitha Korol has pored over the textbooks used in the CC curriculum. Prentiss Hall's "World History," currently used in Brevard Country, Florida, devotes a 72-page chapter to Islam and only small paragraphs about Judaism and Christianity which are embedded in other chapters. Multiple editions of Houghton Mifflin's "Across the Centuries" were found to contain Islamic preaching. And Pearson, the world's leading pre-K-20 educational publishing company, is "dedicated to working with educators to change the way America thinks."

"With whose approval?" Korol asks. Indeed!

In "Contemporary Human Geography 2e," Korol found mention of "the Five Pillars of Islam, the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism, but not the values and righteous ethics of the Ten Commandments of Judaism and Christianity. In "Human Geography," Korol found that "two of the topics posed the acceptability of murdering Jews, but for different reasons and judged by different circumstances. The superintendent of schools in one of the districts said he didn't find that offensive..."


The Crew reported a similar incident where a U.S. Marine was banned from the school grounds after confronting school administrators when his daughter brought home a similar assignment. Click here for report.
