Approval rescinded for Shari'a Law event at Farragut High School
by Whitney Good
Knox County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre has rescinded approval for an upcoming event at Farragut High School that some said discriminated against Muslims.
"The primary purpose of our school facilities is to provide a safe, healthy and comfortable learning environment for our students. When other uses of the facility begin to impinge on or interfere with the administration's ability to provide a suitable education atmosphere, it is necessary for us to reconsider that use," read a letter sent to the group on Friday.
ACT! For America had planned on hosting what they called a town hall meeting to learn about Shari'a law, but some believe the group is doing more harm than good.
