Penn. School Staff to Mosque for Islamic Training

Unbeknownst to taxpayers who funded it . . .

Fifty teachers and school administrators of Lebanon (Pennsylvania) School District bowed to chants of "Allahu Akbar" at the Lebanon Valley Mosque while attending an all-day in-service workshop.  School Superintendent Marianne T. Bartley, who participated, authorized the Islamic training to help the staff relate to the religious aspects of their Arabic students.
"We have so many students from different Hispanic countries, but slowly but surely the Arabic population is growing."
-- Fred Shattls, faculty

"I think this is the first time ever in the United States that a school district goes to a mosque."

It was the second year that the workshop was offered to the staff, according to Fred Shattls, director of the district's English as a Second Language department. The workshop was led by Mohamed Omar, a former teacher's aide and Arabic translator for the district who also served a year as president of the mosque.

Providing a course on Arabic culture and Islam is important, Shattls said, because the number of students from Middle Eastern countries in the district is growing and now totals 87. Most of them are from Eygpt and Morocco, two of the 33 countries represented by students in the district.

At noon, the teachers took a bus to the mosque, located not far away at 13th and Florence streets. Following Islamic practice, each took off their shoes before entering the prayer room where they took a seat on a maroon-colored carpet with intricate designs.

Omar, dressed in a suit and tie, spent about 20 minutes instructing the teachers on the many facets of Islam, including some nearly identical to Christianity, like the belief that all who are faithful to the religion will one day be called before God who will judge them to determine if they will go to Heaven or Hell.
