The Washington Times has an interesting article on how Muslims are quickly turning away from public education and are choosing home schooling as a means to educate their children. According the article, Muslim Americans are becoming one of the fastest growing minority groups within the national home-schooling movement.
The article points out that there is a value clash between public-school teachings and Islamic beliefs. As a result, many Muslim parents choose to educate their children independently. Christians, which make up 75 percent of the nearly 2 million children who are home-schooled, also home school their children because of a difference in philosophy or values. However, Muslim home schooling is much centered on religion, which relies heavily on the Koran.
One Muslim home-schooling advisory organization is www.ArabesQ.com.
