A private British Islamic school has been shut down after failing to improve its educational standards, the government said Friday. The Jameah Islameah School was one of several sites searched by police in September during an anti-terrorism operation aimed at an alleged network of terrorist training camps in Britain. No arrests were made there, although police were deployed around the school for 24 days. The school was inspected by education officials and ordered to improve. "It is important that parents and the wider public are assured that all schools - whether in the maintained or independent sector - provide their pupils with a suitable education, and that we will take strong action against those that are failing," said Schools Minister Jim Knight. The school opened in September 2003 for Muslim boys aged 11 to 16.
