USD 259 sends letter to parents over Five Pillars of Islam bulletin board
by Kyle McCaskey
Wichita Public Schools has sent a letter to parents explaining a bulletin board portraying the Five Pillars of Islam at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary.
The bulletin board has come under scrutiny after a photo of it was posted online. The photo was shared more than 3,700 times on the Facebook page "Prepare to Take America Back."
The district has removed the bulletin board, but said the photo is a misrepresentation. In an email statement, the district said Islam is one of five major religions taught at the school for their historical significance. Other religions include Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism.
