Education: Bet You Didn’t Know This

Crossing the Rubicon2: Tainted Teachings: What Your Kids Are Learning About Israel, America and Islam

In thousands of public school districts across the United States, without ever knowing it, taxpayers pay to disseminate pro-Islamic materials that are anti-American, anti-Israel and anti-Jewish.
Often bypassing school boards and nudging aside approved curricula, teaching programs funded by Saudi Arabia make their way into elementary and secondary school classrooms.
…Saudi influence enters the classrooms in three different ways. The first is through teacher-training seminars that provide teachers with graduate or continuing-education credits.
The second is through the dissemination of supplementary teaching materials designed and distributed with Saudi support. Such materials flood the educational system and are available online.
The third is through school textbooks paid for by taxpayers, some of them vetted by activists with Saudi ties, who advise and influence major textbook companies about the books’ Islamic, Arab, Palestinian, Israeli and Middle Eastern content.

Thanks to Gail of Crossing the Rubicon2 for the information – there’s much more on her site.

  1. Hope they get handle on this problem – sooner rather than later. It will have definite repercussions in the future if they don’t.

    Thank you for the link, Ilona.
