School Assignment Asks Students to Imagine They Were Converting to Islam

At Les Beaucamps High School in Guernsey, England, students between the ages of 12 and 13 were allegedly asked to write a letter pretending they were converting to Islam.

The assignment read, “Complete the letter you started or started planning in class to your family on how you are converting to Islam. Include: How you’re feeling, how becoming a Muslim has changed your life, how much you love your family and hope they can accept your choice. Focus: How would it make you feel having to tell your parents this? How would/ could they react?”

The assignment noted that the exercise was "completely fictional."

An Education spokesman told the Guernsey Press, “The Guernsey agreed syllabus for religious education includes a structured framework for ensuring that Christianity and the other five principal religions (Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism) are studied with sufficient depth and breadth throughout the four Key Stages. It is important that our students are able to learn about, understand, investigate and question all that is around them. As with all subjects, homework will be set to cover all areas of the curriculum.”

The department shared that one parent complained about the assignment on Facebook. After they clarified the context, the parent was satisfied.
