The public school system in the United States is a touchy subject because when it comes to our kids, we can all get pretty worked up. We delegate the job of their scholastic education to those who’ve been vetted and trust that the job will be done in a safe and ethical manner. Unfortunately, the social engineering of our time doesn’t stop with the metal detectors at a school.
Liberals know just as well as we do that the little sponges that are the minds of our children are the best in to make next generation into the tolerant souls that they can push around. Because of this, organizations with special interests are let into the school system all the time to indoctrinate our young people.
Now, it looks like not only are special interest groups being let into the school, but the school itself is altering it’s curriculum to accommodate the Islamic-tolerance agenda. This is most notably taking place in San Diego where the students will be subjected to not only tolerance training but an altered calendar and alternate problem-solving techniques if they’re perpetrated against those of the Islamic faith. Because Muslims have become a protected class, you can see how this could start to be a big bad problem, really fast.
San Diego Unified School District administrators and teachers will have calendars showing Islamic holidays, students will learn more about the religion in social studies classes and safe places will be created on campuses for Muslim students as part of a multi-tiered approach to combat Islamophobia.
‘It’s more of a comprehensive program, not just a curriculum,’ he said. ‘We’re looking at it from a very integrated and holistic approach.’
One of the first steps in the plan will be to distribute letters to staff members and parents addressing Islamophobia and identifying resources to learn about the religion and fight discrimination. District calendars will be reviewed to ensure Islam holidays are recognized, which Anjan said is important so schools will schedule campus events that also can be attended by Muslim families.
Schools also will review and vet materials related to Muslim culture and history in media centers and provide resources and material for teachers.
The plan also calls for a different approach in disciplining students who bully Muslim students. Rather than detention, the school will use a restorative justice method involving the student who did the bullying speaking with the other student to restore their relationship.
Following a presidential campaign season that saw now-President Donald Trump calling for a ban on Muslim immigrants, there have been anecdotal reports nationwide of confrontations and sometimes violent incidents against Muslims.
‘There’s a sense of urgency around this work, especially post-election,’ Anjan said.
Counselors and teachers in schools and colleges throughout the county have said Muslim students are feeling anxious these days, but Anjan said he’s also seen more students wanting to work to create more peaceful campuses.
‘We’ve had students say they want to be leaders around equality issues,’ he said.
Trustees were enthusiastic about moving ahead with the plan.
‘When we create a climate where it’s OK to celebrate diversity and difference, then it makes all of our children safer,’ said Trustee Kevin Beiser. ‘Not just the children who happen to be Muslim.’
‘If we do this right, San Diego Unified School District would be the leading school district in the nation to come up with a robust and beautiful anti-bully and anti-Islamophobic program,” he said. “I’m really happy we’re going toward the right direction. I am excited, but also careful and cautious because the work ahead is something we will all be responsible for.'”
The United States is a country of religious freedom, yes, however, there has got to be a point where religion is defined by something that you hold within your own heart, that affects your own actions toward other people. If we let people justify forcing their will on us under the guise of religion, we’re just enslaved to them. That’s not freedom, that’s bullying on a big huge national scale, and there will be no problem solving if they don’t like us, they’ll just kill us.
