Summary As the Muslim population in the United States continues to grow, Islamic schools are springing up across the nation's landscape. Education, both secular and religious, has always been of the greatest importance to the Muslim community in America. Muslims have made it clear that they want their children to have the best education possible at the same time that they are learning the essentials of their faith. Especially since the events of September 11th, many Americans have become concerned about the teaching going on behind the walls of these schools.
