The parents of a high school student in Farmville, North Carolina, are seeking answers regarding a Common Core-aligned vocabulary assignment given to their child that they claim is essentially Islamic propaganda.
The assignment was reportedly given to seniors at Farmville Central High School and included several pro-Islamic messages.
The worksheet reportedly read: “In the following exercises, you will have the opportunity to expand your vocabulary by reading about Muhammad and the Islamic word.”
The assignment used the words astute, conducive, erratic, mosque, pastoral, and zenith in sentences about Islam.
“The responses to Muhammad’s teachings were at first erratic. Some people responded favorably, while other resisted his claim that ‘there is no God but Allah and Muhammad his Prophet,” one sentence read.
A parent, who asked to remain anonymous, told the news outlet that it was “very shocking” to read the religious material.
“I just told my daughter to read it as if it’s fiction. It’s no different than another of fictional book you’ve read,” she said.
One of the students who was reportedly in the class in which the assignment was given told FoxNews.com that she was “caught off guard” by the content.
“I just looked at it and knew something was not right – so I emailed the pages to my mom,” the student added.
A Pitt County Schools spokesperson reportedly confirmed the assignment is from a state-adopted workbook that meets “Common Core standards for English Language Arts.”
“Our school system understands all concerns related to proselytizing, and there is no place for it in our instruction/ However, this particular lesson was one of many the students in this class have had and will have that expose them to the various religions and how they shape cultures throughout the world,” the district said in a statement.

It’s Summer Noël’s first Christmas, and her dad wanted to make sure she knew the true reason for the season. So this music minister put new words to an old classic to tell of Jesus’ birth. And the result is darling!
Israel's representatives to the world body in New York said the resolution was a byproduct of "an anti-Israel agenda."
The Israeli delegation to the United Nations on Friday denounced a General Assembly resolution calling on Jerusalem to compensate Lebanon for an oil spill that ensued during the 2006 war.
Israel and Hezbollah engaged in a month-long conflict that was triggered by the cross-border raid by the Shi'ite group and its subsequent capture of two Israeli soldiers who were patrolling along the northern frontier.
The UN on Friday determined that Israel should pay Lebanon upwards of $850 million for an oil spill that was caused by Israeli bombardment of a power station. According to the resolution, 15,000 tons of oil seeped into the Mediterranean Sea, prompting "an environmental disaster."
Israel's representatives to the world body in New York said the resolution was a byproduct of "an anti-Israel agenda." Jerusalem says that it has already cooperated with international organizations in helping to clean up the spill.
