Outrage After Students Were Taught Islamic Religious Values

A parent from Summerville, North Carolina is furious after finding out that her middle school student was given a worksheet about the five pillars of Islam. It turns out that this parent isn't the only one who is unhappy.

“Our concern is that if the need permission to teach sexual education, they should be getting permission to teach religious values,” she said.

Dorchester District II spokeswoman Patricia Raynor says sixth graders are taught about several working parts of communities in their “Survey of Civilization” class, including geography, economic structure, and religion.  

“Worksheets on all these features of a civilization are used as teaching tools, including all religions involved,” Raynor said in a statement. “One of the next civilizations beings studied in the course will be ancient Rome that will include the study of Christianity. South Carolina curriculum standards specify the material covered in this study of civilizations.  This curriculum is taught in all school districts in South Carolina.”

It's not a teacher's job to promote religion, unless they work at a religious institution. This is something that needs to be monitored. We've all seen how easily young minds can be bended. Look at the riots on college campuses and the violence we've seen in American cities. A knowledge of Islam is needed for a history class, but it shouldn't go deeper than that.
