raising future terrorist in America?

Posted: September 4, 2007 in All, Blogroll, children, Controversy, Life, Thoughts

There is a new “Madrassa” some call it, academy others call it, public school in NY city that will teach the Arabic language and culture.  People are protesting, and saying it could be teaching religion and there are fears that it will be teaching a radical islamic agenda. I know there are many schools that teach all subjects in spanish, (my son went to one for 4 years).  Is this like that, or do you think that we have reason to be concerned?  Is America trying to create a place to breed future terrorists, or is America trying to teach children to understand the language and culture of the middle east?  What do you think?  Click here to read more about this story.

    It is bull – powers that be are trying to put the so-called racial profiling out there. God forbid that we learn one anothers language – we won’t need at that point translators who don’t relay acurate translatons .

    We should all be multilingual starting in the early grades – other countries have for years taught many languages – if we understand others and open new communication – how refreshing would that be? I have a love of learning languages – it is beautiful the differences – children all love it too – they are far more intuitive than some would have us believe.

    I just find all this negative spewing about alternative schooling within a public setting funny. Have people or should I say the interested media parties on this subject thought about those who are HOME SCHOOLING? It is just more selective enforcement against arabic people…..

    Yeah, that’s kinda where I’ve been leaning as well. I think this world needs a lot more people trying to learn more about others. We were all put here for a reason, and we all DESERVE to be here equally. We need to try and have a little more compassion and understanding, not diversion and separation!
