Campbell Middle School has adjusted its curriculum on the Middle East after a parent complained that material provided for one assignment "positively slants towards Islam." The creator of the materials, though, said she doesn't understand the objection.
Hal Medlin said the assignment, sent home with his seventh-grader in late August, was aimed at helping students outline the pros and cons of school uniforms. The material includes a letter from a woman who is explaining why she is "proud and happy" to be Muslim and a list of seven conditions for women's dress in Islam.
Neither Medlin nor district officials would identify the teacher.
