CAIR Flunks Out

And at taxpayers' expense, too.
From this September 1, 2008 article by Patrick Poole:
The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) released their annual school report cards this week, and the results show that two taxpayer-financed Islamic charter schools operated by officials of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have failed miserably yet again. But protected by powerful political connections, including Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman, and apparently indifferent to their exploitation of the Somali children that comprise the vast majority of their students, the Islamic extremists running the operation appear to have no fear of losing their cash cows. In fact, Ohio educrats have renewed one school’s contract after five years of complete academic failure.

The two schools, International Academy and Westside Academy, are run by a group of local Islamic leaders, including CAIR national board vice chairman Ahmad Al-Akhras, CAIR-Columbus president and CAIR-Ohio board member Abukar Arman, and Islamic Society of Greater Columbus president and imam Mouhamed Tarazi (who serves as principal of one of the schools). At one time or another, all have served on the board of the local private Islamic school in Central Ohio, Sunrise Academy.
[about which I recently posted at Infidel Bloggers Alliance and thereby created quite a stir in the comments section there]


...[S]ince International Academy opened, it has never met the state’s required “adequate yearly progress” standard and has never met more than two of the state indicators. Looking at the past three years of academic performance data, we find in four of the seven tested areas, test scores declined last year from the previous year.

The second school, Westside Academy, appears to be following in its older brother’s failing footsteps. Their state report card shows that they met state standards in one area — attendance. Across all grade levels and subjects, less than 20 percent of their students rated proficient or better. In one subject area, 3rd grade math, the school achieved zero percent proficiency....
Both schools do excel in Islamic extremism, however. Read page 2 of Patrick Poole's article HERE. How much of the same hate-filled ideology is being taught in other Islamic schools all over the United States?

We Americans look across The Pond and think to ourselves, often smugly, that the UK's dhimmitude and lack of measures to control Wahhabist infiltration are the height of stupidity and that we will never let the same happen here. But some signs indicate that we already are allowing the same to happen here.
