Texas – Mansfield a suburb of Dallas – Fort Worth – Arlington – MANDATORY ARABIC CLASSES IMPOSED

I live in Austin.  This is actually something that brings chills up my spine.
These Muslim country’s have vowed to take over the WEST and impose Shariah.  This is part of it.
These kids are not even taught American culture or Christianity or anything about the Bible.  The only thing that these kids will be taught is about ISLAM and the KORAN.
This is absurd.  These parents, from the looks of it, were NOT even given a VOTE on this.  These are MANDATORY?
When is ENGLISH going to be MANDATORY?
Why not have them study the haritage and culture of how America was founded?  They are not even teaching the Constitution and what it means. There are not enough students who know much about the America.
These schools have gotten the money from organizations that wish to promote ISLAM.
This school district needs to be INVESTIGATED and where they are getting the money from.  These organizations have TERRORISTIC TIES!
This is WAR and these people are taking money from the ENEMY?  Isn’t that classified as SEDITION?
Who is the SUPERINTENDENT?
Mansfield School Superintendent Randy Treat
It appears that there isn’t much information regarding this man.
Where is this money coming from?
Why were the parents not given a vote?

Mandatory Arabic Classes Coming To Mansfield

MANSFIELD (CBSDFW.COM) – Some Students at Mansfield ISD schools could soon be learning Arabic as a required language.  The school district wants students at select schools to take Arabic language and culture classes as part of a federally funded grant.

The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education.

As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School.  The program would also be optional for students at T. A. Howard Middle School and Summit High School.

Parents at Cross Timbers say they were caught off-guard by the program, and were surprised the district only told them about it in a meeting Monday night between parents and Mansfield ISD Superintendent Bob Morrison.

The DOE has identified Arabic as a ‘language of the future.’ But parent Joseph Balson was frustrated by the past.  “Why are we just now finding out about it?” asked Balson.  “It’s them (Mansfield ISD) applying for the grant, getting it approved and them now saying they’ll go back and change it only when they were caught trying to implement this plan without parents knowing about it.”

Trisha Savage thinks it will offer a well-rounded education.  “I think its a great opportunity that will open doors. We need to think globally and act locally.”

Mansfield ISD says in addition to language, the grant provides culture, government, art, traditions and history as part of the curriculum.

Some parents had concerns over religion.  “The school doesn’t teach Christianity, so I don’t want them teaching Islam,” said parent Baron Kane.  During Monday’s meeting Morrison stressed the curriculum would not be about religion, but about Arabic language and culture, similar to the Spanish curriculum already in place in the district.

Kheirieh Hannun was born in the Middle East but raised in the U.S.  She believes giving students the option to learn Arabic will give her son and others like him the option to learn more about their culture.  “It was surprising, but I think it’s okay, and it will help come down on the stereotype.”   Hannun says she is hopeful the class could broaden the minds of not only students, but also parents.

The FLAP grant was awarded to only five school districts across the country, including Mansfield.
