New documents unearthed by the Thomas More Law Center show how a Muslim instructor pushed “Islamic propaganda” on teachers in Novi, Mich., in 2017. According to the Law Center, the instructor also denigrated Christianity and America in her “diversity” training.
“We found that the teachers were subjected to two days of Islamic propaganda, where Islam was glorified, Christianity disparaged, and America bashed—all funded by Novi taxpayers,” Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Law Center, said in a statement. “This type of infiltration amounts to an Islamic Trojan horse within our public-school systems. No other religion gets this kind of special treatment in our schools.”
Huda Essa, a Muslim from the Dearborn area and founder of Culture Links, L.L.C., appeared before Novi teachers in a hijab, billing herself as an expert in “cultural competency” and “culturally responsive teaching.” She led a training on August 28 and 29, 2017. TMLC heard about the training roughly one year later and filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in the fall of 2018.
