    Should schools in America teach Arabic numerals as part of the standard curriculum?

    I just heard about this, and it disturbed me.

    Kids as young as six years old in some school districts are being forced to learn this.

    A larger, national poll has already been done, but I'm curious as how the DP crowd will vote.

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Voted no, even though this is a bit misleading.

    omg No more Arabic numerals! | Keep Arabic numerals out of our schools!

    Got that piece looking up what the heck is this about.

    Good, God-fearing, Christian parents can not allow these foreign influences to be forced upon America's children any longer. If Arab immigrants want to teach their children Arabic numerals and use them in their own home, that is of course their right. And as Americans, who are welcoming and not at all xenophobic, we accept this. However it is NOT okay for them to use Arabic numerals in plain sight of our American children, giving them the idea that a decimal-based counting system is acceptable. These offensive, foreign influences have no place in the classroom and we will no longer suffer the persecution of our American values for the sake of this foreign numbering system.

    It is true reflection of an uneducated population we have.

    I guess you start using Arabic numerals then Sharia law can't be that far away.

    Truly an outrage.

    Multiculturalism gone wild.

    This is one of those "Ban dihydrogen monoxide" things that they do on college campuses.
