This report on Michigan Radio, MI' NPR station, offers a little more  
detail than the Detroit Free Press article - and a little more cause for concern.

Keep in mind that Dearborn secondary schools are partnered with  
Michigan State University's Arabic Flagship, focusing primarily on  
curriculum development at this point.  In addition, one primary and  
one intermediate school use one of the largest FLAP grants to support  
Arabic instruction and curriculum development.  Like I said, this  
newest report is cause for concern.
