Conservative Florida mom vows to stop her children from learning about Islam and Arabic numerals
06 Oct 2015 at 14:29 ET
A Florida mom posted a rambling 15 minute video to her Facebook account complaining that her son’s high school world history class textbook spends an entire chapter on Muslims and advances in the Islamic world, including the “origin of Ay-rabic numerals.”
According to the post by Christian Kayla Normandin, she had previously promised to share a video detailing objections she has with the history book being used in her son’s class. …
Touching upon developments in education, astronomy, architecture, art, agriculture, science and mathematics in the Islamic world, Normandin drew attention to the development of the Arabic numeric system — the most common numeric system used in the world today.
“It even has the origin of ‘Ay-rabic’ numerals,” she read from the book …
Following her review of the chapter, Normandin asserted, “We need to stand up against this, y’all. Our children don’t need to be taught this. It’s not teaching them facts. It’s not teaching them truth. It’s basically telling them that this is going to be the way of life.”
She went on to state that she will go as far as she needs to go to get the textbook pulled, saying, “My children aren’t going to learn this.”
