Richmond teacher resigns over 'anti-Muslim' materials
by Leah Binkovitz
A senior government and economics teacher at Foster High School in Richmond has resigned after handing out materials to students on March 27 that called Muhammad a "false prophet" and described Islam as an "ideology of war."
In a statement released on Tuesday night, a Lamar CISD spokesman said the teacher turned in his resignation on April 8.
The teacher, identified by parents familiar with the class as Herby Woolverton, drew public criticism from the community, including from the Houston Council On American-Islamic Relations, which called the eight-page handout "virulently anti-Muslim."
