Congressman Andre Carson (D-IN) was speaking at the ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) in this video. Carson believes American schools should be modeled after Islamic Madrasses. Carson is the second Muslim Congressman in the U.S. House. He is a member of the Congressional Black Congress which has never stood for accountability in our schools, even one time that I know of, but according to Carson, we need “Muslims” to show us the way to educate our children. I agree we need a new attitude of learning to take over school administrations and parents, to turn around our failing schools, but if we are not going to go back to the common sense curriculum and solid methods of tried-and-true teaching/learning of years past, and are going to model our schools after a particular ethnic persuasion, I’ll go with the Japanese.
Madrasses in the state of Virginia are continually accused of teaching hate of all those not Muslim, known as infidels – that would be you and me. Saudi schools in the U.S. adhere to their Wahhabism – hating the infidel, ridding the world of infidels.
American will never tap into educational innovation and enguinuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrasses, in our schools where innovation is encouraged, WHERE THE FOUNDATION IS THE KORAN, and that model that we are pushing in our schools meets the multiple needs of students.
Most of us are visual learners. Some of us are auditory learners, we learn by hearing. Many of us are kinesthetic learners. We learn by doing, touching and feeling.
I have found, as my wife is a principal, we have a 5-year old daughter, Saleema, that we need an educational model that is current, that meets the need of our students. America must understand that she needs Muslims. ~ Andre Carson
