Ms. Robin Lowe, Principal of Friendswood Junior High School in the Houston area is in serious hot water for bringing in a speaker to teach students about the basics of Islam. The Houston Chronicle posted this report on May 29 of the assembly on May 22. The Power Point presentation used in the school assembly by representative of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is online at the site of the Chronicle article and I’ve donwloaded it and posted it here as well. April DeConick, Professor of Bibical studies at Rice University (and a UU) reports on her blog, The Forbidden Gospels, that Principal Lowe has now been fired, and the AP is reporting that she “took another job in the school district.”
But most who spoke at the meeting Tuesday blasted the school board for not supporting Lowe, the Houston Chronicle reported.
