Yesterday, Texas State Senator Dan Patrick launched an investigation after a photo surfaced of students wearing Muslim Burqas and being taught to call Muslim terrorists 'freedom fighters.' The school defended the lesson by claiming it was a state mandated lesson. It was just announced that Senator Patrick has dropped the investigation because it has been determined that the school lied about the content of this lesson being state mandated. In fact, the contents of this class is something that the Lumberton teacher and/or administration has developed the content of this class and not the state, therefore this is a local issue and not a state issue. The school will have some explaining to do at the next school board meeting.
