Parents Revolting Against Secret Islamic-Centric History Being Taught to Students

White County is located 100 miles east of Nashville, Tennessee, and a group of parents are fighting 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 local school boards for approving the purchase of the new Islam-centric textbook called World History and Geography: The Middle Ages to Exploration of the Americas, published by Pearson Education.

It was also discovered that London-based Pearson PLC is partially owned by the Libyan Investment Authority. In addition, according to the Financial Times, the Libyan Investment Authority was founded by Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Seif al-Islam; more than five Gaddafi family members own shares. While fewer than 1 percent of the state's population self-identifies as Muslim, CAIR has publicly criticized the state legislator who has introduced legislation to prohibit the teaching of religious doctrine prior to the tenth grade in Tennessee.

Tennessee parents also claim that CAIR has provided supplementary materials used by some Tennessee school districts. According to a recent Pew Research Poll on religion in America, Tennessee has the highest percentage of Evangelical Christians--which is why CAIR may be interested in the state.

CAIR co-founder and executive director Nihad Awad, “a known Hamas supporter,” has publicly “reject[ed] Israel’s right to exist.” Parents from across the county and the state will be gathering at Tuesday night’s town hall in Sparta, Tennessee sponsored by the group, White County Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination, “to continue efforts to inform and engage the community about the pro-Islamic textbooks and materials being forced upon teachers and students by the White County School Board.” In a press release, the group stated:

"School board members, including Chairman Edd Cantrell and Vice Chairman Gary Sparkman, have ignored parents’ objections to the textbooks and materials and refused to remove them or restrict their use in classrooms. Seventh grade social studies textbooks in White County contain nearly 50 pages devoted to a sugar coated view of Islam and the “Islamic World” while barely mentioning Christianity. The School Board has also violated at least 14 of their own policies and procedures in connection with conducting school board business and may have violated state laws concerning public access to materials used in the classrooms in White County. . . ."

Anthony Wright, chairman of White County Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination, said of the textbook “It doesn’t report 9/11, ISIS. It doesn’t talk about any Islamic group." Wright also claimed the book explained how to convert to Islam, but not to Christianity. Oddly, the White County School district has refused to make either the new textbook or supporting materials available for public review.

Similar parent rebellions are forming in Rutherford, Maury, and Williamson Counties. Tennessee has 95 counties and approximately 140 distinct school districts. Not all 140 districts have adopted and purchased the Pearson textbook, but all are subject to the new Islamic-centric standards.
