Tea Party Chair At Burleson Fights Arabic Classes in Mansfield

Mandatory Arabic Classes Coming To Mansfield, TX
Fellow Americans! Mansfield, Texas needs your help! Parts of Mansfield are in Johnson County! Unbelievably MISD is considering teaching Arabic to American children! (Texans no less!)I have received many calls and emails from fellow Americans in Mansfield. They are urgently needing their fellow Americans to assist them!
Mansfield residents have been told by MISD, that the decision is up to the school board, the parents of children attending MISD and taxpayers of Mansfield, as to teach Arabic.
The American taxpayer is paying for this. It is a grant awarded to MISD by the U.S. Dept. of Ed.! You have a right to contact MISD even if you do not reside in Mansfield, Texas!

The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education.

As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would have been taught at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and other schools feeding into Summit High School.

The Department of Education has identified Arabic as a ‘language of the future.’

Some parents had concerns over religion. “The school doesn’t teach Christianity, so I don’t want them teaching Islam,” said parent Baron Kane. During Monday’s meeting Morrison stressed the curriculum would not be about religion, but about Arabic language and culture, similar to the Spanish curriculum already in place in the district.

How about if schools across the country teach more about the United States Constitution, The Declaration of Independence and The Bill of Rights!

I don't believe the majority of Americans feel that Arabic is a "language of the future". Do you?

Get on the phone immediately and contact MISD! (817-473-5600)

Please make phone calls! Emails are too easy to just delete!

Let them know of your outrage as an American, in reference to teaching Arabic in the United States to our children, funded by the American people! Although the plan is on hold, we must make sure that it moves from "hold" to "ashes in a bucket"!

Best Always,

Angela Cox
