    Summary: 
    In 2007, the first Arabic language public school in the U.S. opened in New York City, generating a tidal wave of controversy. This program follows the Khalil Gibran International Academy's turbulent beginnings; the political firestorm that culminated in the resignation of Debbie Almontaser, the academy's founding principal; and Almontaser's legal battle to get her job back. The compelling narrative combines news clips, interviews with key players in the controversy, and graphic novel-style drawings for added visual interest-shedding light on important First Amendment concepts as well as the "Stop the Madrassa" campaign that accused the school of harboring Islamist influences.
