Islamic schools in midst of leadership crisis with principals sacked, accusations of mismanagement of taxpayer funds
by Alison Branley
Australia's leading Islamic schools are in the midst of a leadership crisis, with school principal sackings, accusations of mismanagement of taxpayer funds, slipping standards and concerns they are becoming more hardline.
Parents have protested about what they say is poor management by the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC), the group that runs the schools.
The schools receive up to $40 million a year in federal and state government annual and building funding.
