A rising number of Muslim-Americans are embracing home-schooling, shaking off the stigma that taking their children out of the public school system would increase the community's isolation and cultural distance from the American mainstream.
Although she doesn't know exactly how many copies of her curriculum are being sold, she says it's in the thousands.
Ms. Ndiaye said the more religious a Muslim family is, and the greater their concern is with public schools' effect on their children, the more likely they are to send their children to an Islamic school or educate them at home.
