From The Gathering Storm Blog

In an entry on the Chronicle of Higher Ed’s Daily News Blog, a new report is noted that talks about barriers to Islamic students studying in western schools. And thus the quandary.

Should our western educational system in search of the almighty dollar make special accommodations to Muslim students seeking student loans or should we just change the entire educational system to accommodate them?

The report offers nearly five dozen recommendations for improvements. Among them are retaining Muslim faculty members and offering halal meals, which meet Islam’s dietary restrictions. One of the biggest problems facing Muslim students is the loan-based student-aid system. “Interest-bearing loans are forbidden in Islam, which means that provincial- and federal-government loans are simply off-limits for many practicing Muslims,” said Mohamed Sheibani, president of the Muslim Students’ Association National of the U.S. and Canada…

The solution?

In principle if a university wanted to attract these students it would be possible to create a contract to charge them a higher tuition than non-Islamic students, then have them replay the loan on installment after graduation without interest. The university would receive the same amount of money either way.

OK. I’ll buy that. That’s a fair solution to their cultural problem. But final remark in the article is the most telling of all.

But could you imagine how the news would handle the idea that Islamic students paid a higher tuition?

God forbid! Well we can’t have that. That’s racist, right? You can bet your bottom Canadian dollar that if education institutions implement such a sensible policy, the uproar would be so loud that the schools will back down and say – “OK. Here’s you loan – interest free.”

It will happen. It follows the pattern. You heard it hear first.
