Common Core Conciliation in Colorado

Douglas County Schools in Colorado today raised more than a few eyebrows with a plan to take Middle School students on a field trip to explore world religions.

According to a local parent, female students will be required to don head scarves and keep 
ankles covered when entering the mosque for a comparison to a Greek Orthodox Cathedral and a Jewish Synagogue.  

One wonders who will lead the discussion about the three religions and whether they will include some or any of the horrendous treatments that women in muslim countries suffer.

710 KNUS's Peter Boyles, who broke the story, appropriately raised the issue of girls and boys being treated differently in the public school setting and how that violates Title Nine.

But beyond that technicality, the topics that ought to be discussed include but are not limited to:  Child Brides, Honor Killings, Female Genital Mutilation, Females not allowed to drive, Females being punished for being raped.  

Oh I could go on and on but those are all good topics for serious reflection ~ Douglas County School Board.

Why you elected officials believe that Colorado school girls should be required to dress
according to Sharia law and have any reverence for a "religion" that relegates them to second class citizenship is a Twilight Zone question that I'll leave for you to answer ~
