    Metro charter school accused of teaching Islam

    A Star Tribune newspaper column has prompted a state investigation into a charter school. A substitute teacher said a school in Inver Grove Heights is blurring the line of separation of church and state.

    Being a charter school Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy, or TIZA, is supported by tax dollars. The teacher told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the presence of religion she observed at the school took her by surprise.

    "I've been in a lot of schools and I've never been in a school where they had washing rituals, or they had prayer, or where they had a room where you had to take your shoes off," Getz said.

    State law requires the school to fly an American flag during school hours, however no flag flies outside of TIZA Academy.

    Zaman told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS he didn’t know how to work the flagpole.

    It's not that he doesn't know how to work the flagpole. Rather, he knows how not to operate it.
