Across the U.S., Muslims who find a public school education clashes with their religious or cultural traditions have turned to home schooling. The choice is intended partly as a way to build a solid Muslim identity away from prejudices their sons and daughters can face in schoolyards. But in some cases, the intent is also to isolate their adolescent and teen daughters from the corrupting influences they see in much of American life. No matter what the faith, parents who make the choice are often inspired by a belief that public schools are havens for social ills like drugs, and they can do better at home.
