Default MANSFIELD School district calls off Arabic studies - "WE" MADE THE DIFFERENCE

MANSFIELD School district calls off Arabic studies - "WE" MADE THE DIFFERENCE
The Mansfield school district will not be teaching Arabic after all.
On Tuesday, the district found out that its revised timeline to implement an Arabic studies program was rejected by the Department of Education, said Richie Escovedo, district spokesperson.
“We are stopping all Arabic studies effective immediately,” Escovedo said.
The district had planned to begin the Arabic studies program this semester at Cross Timbers Intermediate School, but decided to delay the program after almost 200 parents showed up at a parents meeting to question the move. Funded by a federal five-year $1.3 million Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant, the program was to then be integrated into the curriculum at Kenneth Davis and T.A. Howard Middle Schools in the fall and later to Summit High School students.
After weighing the parents’ concerns, the district submitted an amended proposal in February that would have suspended teaching Arabic until the fall, using the rest of the current semester as a planning period. Under the new timeline, Arabic studies would have been offered beginning this fall at T.A. Howard Middle School as an exploratory class for seventh-graders and as a foreign language option for eighth-graders, who could have use it for high school credit. Howard eighth-graders could also have chosen Spanish.
The Mansfield district has already received $5,897.83 from the grant, Escovedo said. He said he does not know if they will be required to refund the money.
“We haven’t received any information that we will have to,” he said.
The school district released the news Friday afternoon in a statement on the district’s website.
“It is clear to me that MISD and the Department of Education will be unable to agree on the specifics of this grant’s implementation,” Superintendent Bob Morrison said in the statement. “It is my decision as superintendent that we accept the Department of Education’s decision without appeal. We appreciate our local community’s patience and honesty as we worked through this process. Thank you for your continued support of our schools.”
The University of Texas at Austin, working with the Mansfield district, originally identified Cross Timbers as a target because 10 percent of the district’s Arabic-speaking population attends the south Arlington school.
The district offers Chinese, Russian, Spanish, French, German and Latin. Students may begin taking language classes in middle school to fulfill their high school requirement of two years of foreign language. This story contains information from the News-Mirror archives.

Islam has been the enemy of Western Civilization for 1,300 years. In 732 AD, French patriots under the command of Charles Martel repelled the Muslim invasion of Europe and cast them back into Spain, from which the Moors were not removed until the late 1,400's. In the centuries that followed, Europeans repeatedly had to throw back Muslim invasions..in Malta, Vienna and in the Balkans. Muslim slave traders enslaved millions of white Europeans over the centuries. The first war of the nascent USA was against the Barbary Pirates in the early 1800's under the leadership of then President Thomas Jefferson, the same President whose name is cited by these intruders for the principle of "tolerance."

Islam is still the enemy of Western Civilization and the mere presence of these aliens is based on the complete failure of European consciousness and failed immigration laws. There should be no Muslims in the USA. NONE. Those who are here should be rounded up and forcibly removed.

"Anti-discrimination" laws are simply a form of suicide. Discrimination is the means by which healthy life forms defend themselves against the harmful effects of associations with unhealthy life forms....such as Muslims. They need to be rounded up, shipped and and killed if they won't go peaceably. This may seem extreme at the moment, but in the years to come deporting and/or killing these natural enemies will be inevitable.

I believe the intent Jean had in posting the article was to point out that our schools were forcing a religion on students, and not that she thinks islamic religion should be banned. You may not like muslim religion, but they have as much right to practice it as do christians, budhists, jews, and mormons, because the constitution protects it. I am going to add that we specifically laid out in our statement that WE DO NOT PROMOTE OR PROHIBIT ANY RELIGION.
I felt the need to make a disclaimer here, since we do not all subscribe to the anti-islamic hysteria that seems to have taken hold in America these days. Disagree with a specific religion all you want, but let's also keep true to our own rules.
