Islamic indoctrination lawsuit

A lawsuit was filed against the Charles County Public Schools, the Board of Education, and the Principal and Vice-Principal of La Plata High School located in La Plata, Maryland. The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of former Marine, John Kevin Wood, and his wife, Melissa, who claim that their daughter was subjected to Islamic indoctrination and propaganda in her high school World History class. It seeks a declaration from the defendants that they violated the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights, in addition to a temporary and permanent injunction barring them from promoting Islam over other religions and from banning Wood from school grounds.

The school issued this statement to local news WTOP, clarifying what was being taught in the classroom. “The particular unit in question is on the formation of Middle Eastern empires in which students learned the basic concepts of the Islamic faith and how it, along with politics, culture, economics and geography, contributed to the development of the Middle East,’ the statement said. “Other religions are introduced when they influence or impact a particular historical era or geographic region. For example, when reviewing the Renaissance and Reformation, students study the concepts and role of Christianity.”
