"A school in England is facing backlash after it sent a letter to parents threatening to add a “racial discrimination note” to the file of any student who failed to attend a workshop about Islam. The note, the letter explained, would “remain on this file throughout their school career.”
[In the US, this is referred to as one's "permanent record".]
"The Littleton Green Community School in Staffordshire, England, quickly retracted the threat after outraged parents and the local council objected.
[The parents were also required to pay for the indoctrination]
The Telegraph provides the original Nov. 20 letter sent by the school:
As part of the National Religious Education Curriculum together with the multicultural community in which we live, it is a statutory requirement for Primary School aged children to experience and learn about different cultures.
The workshop is at Staffordshire University and will give your child the opportunity to explore other religions."
"Children will be looking at religious artefacts similar to those that would be on display in a museum. they will not be partaking in any religious practices.
Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.
As such our expectations are that all children in years 4 and 6 attend school on Wednesday 27th November to take part in this trip.
All absences on this day will be investigated for their credibility and will only be sanctioned witha GP sick note."
One thing that I can say with certainty is that true Americans will support you, with all that implies.
