Bilingual Muslims children have a right, as much as any other faith group, to be taught their culture, languages and faith alongside a mainstream curriculum. More faith schools will be opened under sweeping reforms of the education system in England. There is a dire need for the growth of state funded Muslim schools to meet the growing needs and demands of the Muslim parents and children. Now the time has come that parents and community should take over the running of their local schools. Parent-run schools will give the diversity, the choice and the competition that the wealthy have in the private sector. Parents can perform a better job than the Local Authority because parents have a genuine vested interest. The Local Authority simply cannot be trusted.

There are hundreds of state primary and secondary schools where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out to become Muslim Academies. This mean the Muslim children will get a decent education. Muslim schools turned out balanced citizens, more tolerant of others and less likely to succumb to criminality or extremism. Muslim schools give young people confidence in who they are and an understanding of Islamís teaching of tolerance and respect which prepares them for a positive and fulfilling role in society. Muslim schools are attractive to Muslim parents because they have better discipline and teaching Islamic values. Children like discipline, structure and boundaries. Bilingual Muslim children need Bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods, who understand their needs and demands.

The mind boggles.

The thick edge of the wedge gets closer.

F-off is the fist thought that comes to my mind.

You come to Australia for a change of life, not to change our way of life.

Like it, or leave! It truly is that simple.

rehctub, I get the impression that the poster is UK based. Same deal though, the extremism that marks some muslims in western countries seems to be partly a product of some the very things the poster is pushing for.

They should be in with the rest of the community, mixing and making sure their kids have some understanding of the community in the countries where they choose to live.

If the culture and values of those western countries are so bad they don't want the kids exposed to it then move to some country where muslim values and a culture they like predominate.

One act that could help the country would be to eliminate all language other than English, from all government functions. Anyone making any submission to a government department or agency should have to do it personally, & in English. Make all applications for welfare be required to be done in English, & the bleeding hearts would be amazed at how quickly our asylum recipients would master English.

Schooling must be conducted in English only, & all foreign language TV & newspapers , particularly publicly funded TV, must be banned.

If these people had some reason to learn the language, they just might, but only might, become useful citizens, rather than an intentional drain on the taxpayer.

Hasbeen,

"Schooling must be conducted in English only, & all foreign language TV & newspapers , particularly publicly funded TV, must be banned."

That'd make it bloody hard to learn a foreign language!

[Sorry, couldn't help myself].
