Parents upset over pics of their daughters wearing burqas in school2/26/2013
A Texas mom freaked out after seeing a picture of her 14-year-old daughter on Facebook, not because she was shotgunning beers or something, but because she was wearing a burqa. The students were part of a geography class at Lumberton High School where an in-depth lesson about Islam was taught. In addition to dressing in burqas, the class was told not to say "Muslim terrorists" but rather "freedom fighters." The teacher — who told the class that she didn't necessarily agree with the material but was required to teach it — said the controversial curriculum was intended to change the students' perception of Islam. "The lesson is not teaching a specific religion, and the students volunteered to wear the clothing," the school district said in a statement. [Source]
