Pressure builds against Islamic indoctrination in Tennessee schools

FROM NOOGANOMICS: The whitewash of Islam is provoking a mild backlash among public school parents in Tennessee, Nooganomics reports. Their children spend hours every day in a state system where propaganda for Muslims is one of many types imposed by state government upon them. A meeting Tuesday night in Cleveland focused on the the Islamocentric materials used on schools to make Islam appear harmless, historic and heavenly.

Parents across Tennessee are taking on the state’s political and educational establishment, aiming to get rid of the recently implemented Islam-centric seventh grade Social Studies standards.

A group of parents in White County, about 100 miles east of Nashville, are taking the fight to the seven publicly elected county school board members in that county who approved the purchase of the new Islam-centric textbook that elaborates on those standards, myWorld History and Geography: The Middle Ages to Exploration of the Americas, published by Pearson Education.

The current uprising pits Tennessee parents against Republican Governor Bill Haslam, the Tennessee Department of Education, the large and powerful multinational textbook publisher Pearson Education, the state’s educational bureaucrats, unaccountable local county school directors, and their far too compliant local school boards.

The involvement of Pearson Education is particularly controversial since its parent corporation, London based Pearson PLC, is partially owned by the Libyan Investment Authority. With 3 percent of Pearson’s outstanding stock, the Libyan Investment Authority is one of its largest shareholders.
