A mother in Union County, North Carolina, told WJZY-TV that her son, a freshman at Porter Ridge High School, brought home a worksheet on Islam containing some questionable answers. She was upset enough over the assignment that she contacted the school and her local news station after reviewing the material.
The sentence that bothered the mom the most stated, “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.”
Read some of the other answers from the world history assignment below:
It should be noted that school officials have yet to provide a completed version of the worksheet to the news outlet. Though it appears that the high school has not disputed the content, the answers were filled in by the student and seemingly have yet to be verified as 100 percent correct.
“If you are going to do it, let’s do it right,” the mother told WJYZ-TV. “I really feel there is a spin on this.”
The mother, who asked to remain anonymous so her child isn't singled out at school, said officials didn't provide a clear answer when she asked if Christianity is being taught in the same fashion.
A spokesman at the Islamic Center for Charlotte told the news station that schools shouldn’t teach that Muslims’ faith is automatically stronger than that of Christians.
