THE Birmingham schools accused of teaching Islamic extremism had To Kill a Mockingbird on their syllabus, OFSTED has revealed.
The ‘Trojan Horse’ schools are suspected of educating pupils about historical white racism, that the value of a person is not determined by the colour of their skin, and that creepy shut-in types are not necessarily paedophiles.
A spokesman for the Department of Education said: “The hero of this book is a man who stands in court arguing justice is more important than what his community wants.
“So, you know, one of those self-important human rights lawyers who never joins in the fun when the town gets together for a Friday night barbecue and lynching party.
“And it treats a prolonged economic depression like it’s a bad thing rather than an opportunity to rethink your career, live more efficiently and vote Conservative.”
The schools insist the books are part of a balanced curriculum, though they admit there has been a 2,000 per cent increase in pupils claiming they ‘can’t do PE because they’ve got withered arms’.
Pupil Maliq Masood said: “I quite liked it. It was a nice change of pace after a double period of jihad maths.”
