Educating the Muslims of America

This chapter discusses current research on Islamic education in America as well as directions for future research. This volume has explored key issues and debates regarding Islamic education in North America generally and the United States in particular. It has covered a wide range of topics from full-time Islamic schools and homeschooling to Muslims in public schools, universities, and prisons. Contributors have examined conceptual notions of education, including related issues of identity, integration, preserving culture, civic engagement, creating safe havens, and ghettoization. This initial effort at assessing the education of Muslims in North America has only scratched the surface, and more questions have been raised than answered.

Keywords:   Islamic education, homeschooling, Islamic schools
