“School Board has refused to remove textbooks and materials that promote Islam in White County Schools”

SPARTA , TN (October 14, 2015) – Concerned parents and citizens in White County, Tennessee are hosting a townhall meeting in Sparta on Tuesday October 20 @ 6pm @ Christian Life Assembly located at 117 North Spring St, Sparta 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.

Over 100 parents attended an organizational meeting at the White County Library last week. 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.

Usama Dakdok (an Egyptian Christian who eventually immigrated to the US and now operates a ministry teaching the truth about Islam and spreading the Gospel; (http://www.thestraightway.org/) will be one of the guest speakers, along with Anthony Wright, Chairman of White County Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination. Nashville attorney Mike Sheppard will also detail the apparent violations of school board policies and procedures by the White County School Board and School Superintendent Sandra Crouch.

“The School Board has adopted the textbooks and materials in a shroud of secrecy and misrepresentation and have attempted to hide what is happening in our classrooms concerning the promotion of Islam and limited mentions of Christianity,” Anthony Wright pointed out.

“We plan to expose what is happening and call the community to action since the values promoted by the School Board members in our classrooms do NOT reflect the values of our community nor do they follow the laws of the land.” Bryan Wright, who recently attended a School Board meeting to object to the materials, explained that “the schools should teach any aspect of religion with a focus on fairness, balance and TRUTH; that is not happening with respect to the Islamic Indoctrination being presented in White County thanks to our own elected officials.”

“The fault is not the teachers who are being forced to use these materials; it is the fault of the school board that unanimously approved them and who should be held accountable for that terrible decision,” Bryan Wright noted.

Overton County, Tennessee has adopted a set of supplemental materials to provide a fair and balanced teaching of social studies and religion but the White County School Board has refused to accept any alternative to the textbooks and materials they adopted despite significant and growing parental objections.
