Syed Shaukat on Board of Education Vote to Close School for Students on Eid Holiday (VIDEO)
The Montgomery County Board of Education recently voted to move a professional day from the 2016-2017 school calendar year to September 12, 2016. It’s an important victory for the Muslim community since Eid al-Adha could fall on the same day. In this MyMCMedia Extra video, Syed Shaukat, Islamic Society of North America Adviser, talks about the vote and its impact. He’s been lobbying for the cause for 15 years.
