Despite so many parents alleging the opposite, NYU Abu Dhabi graduate Melissa Levinson claims that K-12 textbooks are "emblematic of how enshrined Islamophobia has become in American culture."

Amid an avalanche of complaints from parents that their children's school textbooks are infused with Islamic supremacism, NYU Abu Dhabi graduate Melissa Levinson claims that K-12 textbooks are "emblematic of how enshrined Islamophobia has become in American culture." She objects, in particular, to the textbooks' portrayal of the Middle East as a region that has "declined into chaos, oppression, and violence." Perhaps there is hope for K-12 education after all.
