Minnesota teachers’ union meeting includes session on how to teach about Islam in public schools

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2012

You can bet they aren’t going to talk about 9/11, or the Minnesota Somali just convicted of aiding Al-Shabab, or the recent attack on our consulate in Benghazi and the murder of our Ambassador.  Not this bunch!

Here are some of the other topics posted by EAG (Education Action Group Foundation).

EAG News:

“Using Persona Dolls to Promote Social Emotional Intelligence and Acceptance of Diversity”; “Defined Benefit vs. Defined Contribution Pension Plans”;  “Financial Concerns for Women”; “Teaching Students to be Peacemakers”; “Contextualizing Immigration Using History and Human Rights”; “Teaching about Islam in the Context of Social Studies and World Religion” and “The State of Minnesota Schools and LGBTQ Youth: A Roundtable Discussion.”

I don’t see anything about teaching about Christianity or Judaism.
