A school district superintendent in semi-rural Southern California has completely outlawed all drawings of all religious leaders on campus because a history teacher assigned a vocabulary worksheet that asked students to draw images of Muhammad.
Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District superintendent Brent Woodard implemented the far-reaching ban after a single parent complained, reports the Los Angeles Daily News.
The seventh-grade history assignment at High Desert School in Acton, Calif. was a worksheet called “Vocabulary Pictures: The Rise of Islam.” It featured several words including Quran, Mecca, Bedouins and Muhammad. There was space for students to sketch their own images representing the various words.
What I do not understand is how any religion got into the curriculum. Attending public school I never had occasion where we were discussing religion. My suspicion is what is occurring in that the muslim faith is being discussed and children are being indoctrinated to be believers.
Stories keep popping up of muslim studies and requirement of the students to learn it and this is plain wrong and should be stopped.
