UK school assignment for 12-year-olds: Write a letter to family about converting to Islam



A furious stepfather has refused to let his 12-year-old stepdaughter finish her homework after she was asked to write a letter to her family about becoming a Muslim.

Mark McLachlan, 43, from Houghton-le-Spring, near Sunderland, has slammed the decision by the Kepier School to ask pupils to pen the note.

He has refused to let his stepdaughter, who he has asked not to be named, complete the task after failing to see what the letter would accomplish.

Mr McLachlan said: I know as part of the national curriculum they have to learn about all religions.

?I just don?t see why they should ask a child to write a letter addressed to their family about converting to another religion. I really just don?t see what the letter will gain.

?If they want children to learn about Islam, then go teach them all about it and its history.
