Principal Criticized Over Islamic Presentation

Ad Feedback

A Texas principal is under fire after allowing a controversial presentation on Islam at her public school.

Friendswood Junior High principal Robin Lowe let the Council on American Islamic Relations speak on Islam May 22.

They talked to nearly 900 students about the religion without the approval of the administration or parents.

Parents packed into a recent school board meeting to discuss the event.

Some support the principal, but others are very concerned that a group like CAIR could make such a presentation without the school's permission.

"She is not being hung out to dry as some have suggested she has proven herself to be a first class educator and she does not deserve to be vilified," Friendswood Superintendent Trish Hanks said. "I am deeply concerned that an organization like CAIR was allowed access to our school."

Principal Lowe has asked to be reassigned to an administrative position.
