(p.67) 3 The Case for the Muslim School as a Civil Society Actor
Educating the Muslims of America

Louis Cristillo

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the Muslim school outside the conventional frame of curriculum and classroom. It explores how the Muslim school becomes a major actor in a nexus of institutions — the mosque, the local professional and business sector, the family, and the state — and in so doing provides evidence to correct the misconception that the Muslim school marginalizes youth inside a real or imagined ethno-religious ghetto. The analysis reveals, in fact, that participation in the founding and life of a Muslim school produces overlapping social networks to bring individuals and groups into greater involvement in American civic life and participatory democracy.

Keywords:   Muslim schools, Islamic education, social networks, civic life, participatory democracy
