Some British schools have stopped teaching about the Holocaust “because of fears that Muslim pupils might express anti-semitic reactions,” reports The Telegraph, citing a government report.
One school avoided teaching the Crusades because its “balanced” handling of the topic would directly contradict what was taught in local mosques.
Teachers fear “causing offence or appearing insensitive,” says the report by the Department for Education and Skills.
“In particular settings, teachers of history are unwilling to challenge highly contentious or charged versions of history in which pupils are steeped at home, in their community or in a place of worship.”
Think about what that means.
