Comment:Thank you for this article.I've been researching islamic schools online,and have found it difficult to get any objective information.i have heard from friends that the quality of education at islamic schools does not measure up to public schools as many teachers are not board certified.Now that makes sence,since the wages are not high enough. This is such a dilemma,but feel that it is our responsibility as muslims and parents to help the growth of islamic schools to hopefully reach the levels of jewish schools.May God guide us all to make the best decisions for the future of our children

Comment:I really enjoyed this article. I am researching options for my son who will be 4 in October, and so far I am not happy with the options. We have only 1 Islamic School in the local area, PreK thru 6th grade. It is poorly run and bankrupt monthly. I refuse to send my son to public school because I know what negative environment is out there, as I was educated here being a revert later in life. Here is a question.... WHY WHY WHY are the majority of schools disorganized, run by ONE person dictating and not like a team of professionals? How can we improve the quality of Islamic Education in the US (west)? Can't we create a mandatory participation in a group for Islamic Schools where certain standards are met, academically, financially, Islamically? Why can't we all unite instead of being so seperate with EVERYTHING? I know we make up so many cultures, countries of origin etc.... but THIS IS THE FUTURE OF ISLAM/OUR CHILDREN we are talking about.

Comment: Almost all children now believe they go to school to pass exams. The idea that they may be there for an education is irrelevant. State schools have become exam factories, interested only in A to C Grades. They do not educate children. Exam results do not reflect a candidate’s innate ability. Employers have moaned for years that too many employees cannot read or write properly. According to a survey, school-leavers and even graduates lack basic literacy and numeracy skills. More and more companies are having to provide remedial training to new staff, who can’t write clear instructions, do simple maths, or solve problems. Both graduates and school-leavers were also criticised for their sloppy time-keeping, ignorance of basic customer service and lack of self-discipline. 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. The British Government is planning to make it easier to schools to “opt out” from the Local Authorities. Muslim children in state schools feel isolated and confused about who they are. This can cause dissatisfaction and lead them into criminality, and the lack of a true understanding of Islam can ultimately make them more susceptible to the teachings of fundamentalists like Christians during the middle ages and Jews in recent times in Palestine. Fundamentalism is nothing to do with Islam and Muslim; you are either a Muslim or a non-Muslim. 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 Islam’s 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. None of the British Muslims convicted following the riots in Bradford and Oldham in 2001 or any of those linked to the London bombings had been to Islamic schools. An American Think Tank studied the educational back ground of 300 Jihadists; none of them were educated in Pakistani Madrasas. They were all Western educated by non-Muslim teachers. Bilingual Muslim children need bilingual Muslim teachers as role models. A Cambridge University study found that single-sex classes could make a big difference for boys. They perform better in single-sex classes. The research is promising because male students in the study saw noticeable gains in the grades. The study confirms the Islamic notion that academic achievement is better in single-sex classes. Iftikhar Ahmad http://www.londonschoolofislamics.org.uk

Comment:I think the main problem is the muslim community, If we all are united and think of our kid's future by building strong schools instead of investing in just building mosques...If we invest in raising true muslim youth that will pay off: we will build the future of islam and america inchallah.

Comment:Having been a full time English teacher for two years in an Islamic school and a non-Muslim myself and the 1st in their 9 year history (I am writing a book about it) I have to say this article expresses some of what I went through as a teacher in an Islamic school. I enjoyed teaching the upper grades and I personally felt safe and happy in an Islamic environment. The students I taught were all well mannered, polite, respectful of elders and strong in character. They knew "who they were" and had no need to emulate rock stars like Britney. They were the Lebanese, Palestinians and Iraqis of Los Angeles. My salary was not so good, I admit. I didn't have medical insurance either. I also had to contend with illiteracy. Most teachers were not certified! I hold a BA and MFA in English, so, my students were taught well. I brought literature to the curriculum. I gladly helped the girls with their Friday cleaning rituals. I happily learned about the Islamic holidays and respected the school in its choices when it came to my students having to fast all day during Ramadan. I brought in art, poetry and stage plays. I took my students to two museums (they had never been) and I would do it all over again, if I could get better pay (13 an hour without benefits is a paultry sum in Los Angeles to live on). I'm all for these sort of schools. These people taught me how the youth of today "SHOULD" act. No drugs, no premarital sex, no nasty attitudes, no violent disrepectful threats made. Girls were modestly dressed, without painted faces beyound their years or mini skirts (what's the purpose of that?) Wow! What a Utopia I found, not to mention the delicious cultural dishes served up at teacher's meetings! Public school kids could learn from these Islamic schools. What they could learn is how to act right and what it is to truly be a child, a teen and a person with self worth and self respect, something grossly lacking in our youth for the past 50 odd years in this country. And oh, I'm Jewish and it did not matter to them that I was. We all learned from each other and isn't that the point of education?

Comment:The article is informative and well written. I am in the process of writing a paper about the education of muslims in America. I would like to know (from Parents) what are the challenges that muslim students face when they go to public schools and what the schools and teachers can do to improve the situation?
