This State’s Schools Just Made Sick Move To HIDE Islamic Lessons From Public… Spread Everywhere
Earlier this month, the American Center for Law & Justice filed an open records request demanding that taxpayer-funded school districts in Tennessee fully reveal any teaching materials — tests, lesson plans, study guides, etc. — they use that pertain to the Islamic religion.
According to The Tennessean, a number of school districts rejected this request on the basis that such requests are invalid when they are made by a non-Tennessee entity.
“Our client denies your request in full,” attorney Chuck Cagle of the Lewis Thomason law firm reportedly wrote on behalf of some of these districts. “Among many other defects in your demand, the Tennessee Open Records Act only requires that certain public records be made available for personal inspection by Tennessee citizens.”
However, ACLJ executive counsel CeCe Heil pointed out to reporters that the request was in fact “signed by an attorney who is a citizen of Tennessee.”
The Daily Caller added that the request was made in the first place because of concerns among parents regarding “what they perceive as an inappropriate focus on Islam in history and social studies courses in Tennessee middle schools.”
