What would you do if your 12-year-old daughter had a homework assignment asking her to explain to you why she decided to convert to Islam?

This actually happened in a school in Sunderland in northern England, the Daily Mail reported.
Students at Kepier School were given this assignment:
Write a letter to family about converting to islam [sic]
Stepfather Mark McLachlan brought the issue to public attention after he refused to allow his stepdaughter to complete her homework.
McLachlan said he appreciates students learn about world religions at school but added:
“What I don’t want is a school asking my stepdaughter to look into reasons for converting to another religion.”
