Mom pulls daughter out of class after lesson on Islam

posted by Manny Munoz -

Michelle Edmisten is furious after she found out her daughter was learning about the Islam religion as part of her 7th grade curriculum.

Edmisten claims her daughter's "personal religious beliefs were violated" when she learned about Islam in her social studies class. Her daughter opted out of the classes and was given zeros for refusing to do the work.

"Those are zeros that we proudly took and we will not compromise. I will not give up this fight," says Edmisten.

The upset mom has launched a crusade against the textbooks used in the schools, claiming it goes against the beliefs of the county. She took her concerns to the school board meeting.
