Muslim Children and Sex Education

Muslim parents teach their children to respect their teachers. From a very young age, we are taught that Islam teaches us that after our parents, our teachers are most deserving of respect.
It must be an extremely confusing time for the Muslim parent in Leytonstone, London. For up to 30 parents may face prosecution for withdrawing their children from school, disobeying the teachers in the school, simply to secure a decent moral upbringing for their children. The school had decided to have a week of lessons about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history. Part of this was a special adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet retitled Romeo and Julian as well as fairytales and stories changed to show men falling in love with men. Rather than filling the heads of impressionable boys and girls with fatuous drivel about gay penguins, schools should be ashamed of the fact that they are sending children out into the world barely able to read, write and add up properly. Muslim children are leaving schools without learning their cultural roots and linguistic skills.

The action was being taken against the parents as part of a policy of ' promoting tolerance'. So why not tolerate parents, who, for sincerely-held reasons, consider their children too young to be taught about gay relationships? This isn't education, its cultural fascism. A record numbers of pupils persistently played truant in 2006-07, with around 272,950 pupils persistently absent in 2007, missing more than 20% of school. We rarely see councils prosecute the parents of these persistent truants. Yet, the parents who removed their children as a one-off to protect their morality may be prosecuted!

If the local council does decide to go through with a prosecution, it would be in line with the government's approach to the Muslim community. Muslims who believe homosexuality is a sin would be labelled as extremists. Liberal totalitarianism is a growing phenomenon in Britain and the west in general but many people will be shocked that the school can override a parent's view of what's appropriate or inappropriate to teach their children.

This latest episode should be a wakeup call for Muslim parents. Muslim parents MUST explain our moral standards to schools and be prepared to take steps to protect our children’s morals and values from a growing agenda to impose liberal values upon them. This is an eye opening for those Muslim parents who keep on sending their children to state schools to be mis-educated and de-educated by non-Muslim monolingual teachers.

The solution of all the problems facing Muslim children is state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers. Those state schools where Muslim children are in majority may be designated as Muslim community schools. Bilingual Muslim children need state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods.

Great article.

I remember when my brother was in Kindergarten (in Canada), his teachers showed pictures to the class showing different types of families.  Some had single parents. Some had both parents. Some had 2 male parents. Some had 2 female parents.  

Too much for a 5 year old brain.

They're only prosecuting because the parents are Muslim.

I would be very surprised if any staunch Catholic/Jewish parent would be similarly victimised for withdrawing their child from such 'lessons'.

Besides I'm pretty sure the LEA allows for parents to withdraw children from sex ed, I'm actually positive about it if the parent wishes to teach their own child in their own way and time it's deemed suitable!

I bet the school is using the absence during term time without prior consent as reason in court.

It's pick on them 'mozlems' time isn't it really.

The demand for state funded Muslim schools is in accordance with the law of the land. Muslim community is not asking for any favour. Muslim community pays all sorts of taxes and is less burden on social services.

There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be designated as Muslim community schools.

There are only 140 Muslim schools and only ten are state funded. All Muslim schools have lengthy waiting lists and all Muslim schools should be state funded. Only less then 5% of Muslim children attend Muslim schools while over 95% keep on attending state and church schools to be mis-educated and de-educated by non-Muslim monolingual teachers. Bilingual Muslim children need bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during theiur developmental periods.

What we need is good teachers, who are dedicated to teaching.

We need to become the example of learning again.

I am so worried about what kind of school to send my children to once they leave primary, I want them to get an exemplary education inshallah but not at the expense of their deeny talim or vis a versa.


It is so hard living in this day.
