An Atlas reader in France tells me that the government is forcing schools to teach parts of the koran. A Muslim Congressman, Andre Carson, thinks that US schools should do this, too.
My niece tells me that in France, the government is forcing schools to teach parts of the koran. This, after having removed all Christian crosses from ALL classrooms and making Christianity in schools forbidden. It is causing french people to revolt and pull kids out of these courses forced upon them.

Mr. Holland and his government
I just learned that my little 10 year old son in primary is forced to learn the Koran in school, and will be asked about this at the end of the year with a rating.
I ask it is no longer allowed in our public schools learning French forced the religion that is not the main France.
Thank you for helping me and submit this petition our government.
