Texas teaching ‘Allah is the Almighty God’

Curriculum under fire for radical ideas, secrecy

From WND.com, by John Griffing, December 14, 2012 – In the 70 percent of Texas public schools where a private curriculum has been  installed, students are learning the “fact” that “Allah is the Almighty God,” charge critics of a new online curriculum that already is facing condemnation  for its secrecy and restrictions on oversight.
