No assimilation in the UK. From The Guardian:
The British state education system is failing to meet the needs of Muslim pupils and parents, according to a report calling for special classes in Islamic subjects, more single-sex education and prayer rooms in secondary schools.
The Muslims on Education policy document, compiled by Muslim academics and educationalists and being launched in the House of Lords tomorrow, argues that Britain’s largest minority community should have access to more Muslim state schools and that non-Muslim schools should adapt more fully to the community’s needs. …
The wide-ranging proposals include reform of the curriculum to accommodate Muslim needs, recommending compulsory religious education from 14 to 16, a new A-level in Islamic studies and a teacher of Islam in all Muslim-majority state schools for Muslim pupils who withdraw from religious education.
Some state schools should use private Muslim teachers for special classes on Islamic subjects, and all majority Muslim schools should provide a teacher of Islam for students who withdraw from collective worship, the study says.
The report also says state schools should do more to address the needs of Muslim pupils, including organising religious awareness training for staff and governors.
