Muslims join the parents’ rights battle over schools with these surprising results
Muslim families across the United States are fighting for traditional religious values, including modesty, in schools. Muslim parents are opposing sex education and gender fluidity indoctrination, and some are even voting Republican, concluding that the Democratic Party is not respecting Islamic values. Muslim women at Stuyvesant High School in New York, for example, will no longer have the option of single-sex swim classes, despite the requirement to receive swim instruction to graduate. Students now have to choose between modesty and graduation. Muslim parents are fighting for single-gender locker rooms and bathrooms and for more faith-based values. Yale University is now offering single-gender dorms and bathrooms, in response to protests by female Muslim students. The Biden administration, on the other hand, recently announced rule changes that favor transgender athletes in elementary and middle schools and also revoked a Trump-era commitment to protect religious clubs and associations on college campuses. Muslims are waging the battle one campus demonstration and school board meeting at a time and often winning. Muslims are a powerful presence at Yale, with a Muslim woman serving as the student body president in 2021. Utah, Maryland, and Illinois all recently passed state laws allowing school athletes to wear turbans, hijabs, and modest pants and tops in competition instead of regulation form-fitting uniforms. Despite the fact that most Muslims still vote Democratic, the shift toward voting Republican has begun. In the 2022 midterms, a Wall Street Journal exit poll found that 28% of Muslims voted Republican, a double-digit increase over the 2018 midterms.
