Houston Area Taxpayers and Parents to Demonstrate for National Cohesion on Opening Day of Houston ISD’s Arabic Immersion Magnet School
|Houston area taxpayers,concerned citizens and parents will assemble to oppose the Houston ISD Arabic Immersion Magnet School on the opening day of school in the Houston Heights.
Instead of seeking assimilation of all immigrants into the American Culture, including, speaking a common language,Houston ISD presses ahead on Balkinization. Instead of emphasizing unity through English immersion studies, HISD has opted to create a special school for a group that rejects assimilation into the American way. Promoters of this school, such as, the Arab-American Cultural Center and the Bilateral US-Arab Chamber of Commerce who pushed for this school have the full cooperation from the Houston ISD Board and intimately assist the district’s needs in Arabic staffing.
