Break the Chain History or Religion?

Exclusive (1/16/2002) This letter (not reproduced here because of length and copyright issues) is an editorial by Reverend Austin Miles for the ASSIST News Service. It tells of a course on Islam being taught to 7th graders in Byron (California) Public Schools. It contains quotes from Elizabeth Christina Lemings, a Byron teacher who was unaware of the class until her son brought home paperwork for it. The article goes on to criticize the textbook for the class, Across the Centuries as a one-sided account.
