The plot came to light after a document was anonymously sent to teaching unions and the Birmingham City Council that shared tactics on how to take over school leadership, and how the Islamists had already managed to do that at four of the targeted schools. Former staff and parents have been complaining about anti-Western teachings, segregation of boys and girls, and banning of sex education at many Birmingham schools. Non-Muslim staff have also complained about being bullied.
So as a result of what is being called Operation Trojan Horse, the former head of the Metropolitan Police's anti-terror unit has been chosen to investigate the alleged plot to Islamize public schools. There are now 25 possibly targeted schools, up from 15. The P.C. folk have naturally balked at the appointment of Clarke, claiming it could send the wrong message to the Muslim community, but when an al-Qaeda-linked preacher is being praised during class, then those schools deserve to be investigated.
There have been at least 200 complaints since the plot to force out head teachers was made public. Mind you, these are secular, public schools.
