The San Diego Public School District CAIRs

Why does nobody scream separation of church and state when they show up? “A federal judge ordered the San Diego Unified School District on Tuesday to hand over evidence detailing its correspondence with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) about the implementation of a controversial anti-Islamophobia bullying initiative at San Diego public schools,” Andrew Kerr reported in The Daily Caller on March 7, 2018. “The development is the latest in a long-running saga concerning school officials in San Diego coordinating with CAIR, an American-Muslim civil rights and religious organization with known links to a number of anti-Israel groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“The controversy began in April when the San Diego school district announced it was launching an anti-Islamophobia initiative to combat what it described as a vast and underreported epidemic of anti-Muslim bullying in the district’s schools.The multi-year anti-bullying plan, developed with assistance from CAIR, called for adding Muslim holidays to staff calendars, introducing new library materials on Muslim culture, encouraging Muslim-centered high school clubs, creating ‘safe spaces’ for Muslim students and providing staff training about Muslim culture.”

The ranks of Christians and Jews who enjoy such privileges in public schools are far from legion. Indeed, they may be virtually nonexistent, particularly the “safe spaces.”
