(FOX NEWS) A suburban Nashville school district is tweaking its popular world studies course after at least one student’s parent objected that all five religions studied in the class were not given equal representation.

The Tennessean reports Hendersonville High School officials in Hendersonville, Tenn., canceled future field trips to local houses of worship once Mike Connor — the stepfather of a freshman student — complained students only visited a mosque and Hindu temple this year, rather than those of all five religions studied.

“If you can’t share equal time to all five, you shouldn’t do any of them,” Connor reportedly said at a school meeting last month. “If we as parents don’t begin speaking up, no one will.”
