Logic's Rock: Demonising the Separatists - Getting Them Young | NLC | Scoop.it
The hitherto largely RedTory and Orange Republic of North Lanarkshire has long provided a home for bigotry and Labour bullying, with parliamentary and council seats being regarded as nigh-on heritable property. However, the biscuit has now been taken. I am indebted to Am Buidheann Dubh / The Black Band (Facebook Link) for the following photos of a Primary 7 (11 year olds) homework assignment from yesterday.

Muslims slam council's apology over school's Palestine 'terrorism' homework

Muslims slam council's apology over school's Palestine 'terrorism' homework | NLC | Scoop.it
MUSLIMS claimed pupils were being brainwashed about the Middle East conflict after the worksheet talked about suicide bombings carried out by "separatists".
rableather's insight:
Leaders from Lanarkshire Mosques ( plural) have already had meetings with the council. Why does Glasgow and Edinburgh both feature in this story and no mention of they slums closest to the epicentre. Statent from the council??? Escuse me, that teacher, was not ordered to put out that sheet. 5-14 becoming redundant did not know endear everything obsolete. The same learning is still taught. It is sometimes differently packaged and always differently recorded
