Public school in Minnesota says ‘NO’ to Somali special accommodation

Well, well, it seems that in addition to Swifts & Co growing a backbone and saying, NO!, to demands by Somali workers in both Greeley, CO and Grand Island, NE, a public school district in Minnesota is also sticking to its guns on the issue of special prayer times.  Hat tip:  Michael.

WILLMAR, MINN. – Willmar public school officials are sticking with their original policy on when to allow Somali students to pray, and Somali families have agreed to follow it.

Some Somali parents in Willmar had complained that the public schools weren’t allowing their Muslim children to step out of class for daily prayer. Some didn’t send their children to school last week in protest.

School officials met with a Somali parent to listen to the concerns but said they’re not changing their policy.

Students can pray during lunchtime and between class periods.

What, did the word go out from on high somewhere that this was the year for Somalis to make Ramadan demands?

If anyone hears that CAIR arrives in Willmar, let us know.
