Kirklees College has defended its record on community cohesion after a BBC report claimed students showed support for IS.
And Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman has also hit out at the BBC Radio 4 report, in which teenagers told of their views on the conflict.
The college had agreed to be featured in a report on the work of the anti-terrorism Prevent strategy, and allowed the team to interview Polly Harrow, head of students services.
But the report also included comments from teenagers interviewed elsewhere in Huddersfield.
The programme stated that Huddersfield is a ''priority area for the Government's counter terrorism strategy''.
Students were featured saying that young men were going to fight for IS for ''a better life'' and "It's the new trend.''

Peter McCann, principal at Kirklees College, said: “As is the expectation of all educational establishments, the Prevent agenda is taken very seriously at Kirklees College.
“We recognise that as part of West Yorkshire, we are based in a priority area for our Government to work with all young people. We are part of a network of local and national organisations who are responsible for safeguarding those who are vulnerable and at risk of radicalisation.
“Kirklees College has been applauded by the Home Office for the positive work it has been doing with the local authority on the national Prevent programme, providing support for young people at risk of radicalisation.
“The college is a harmonious community with students from very many social, ethnic and religious backgrounds and we are very proud of the social cohesion work we provide for the community of Kirklees.”
Mr Sheerman said: “Reports like this do a lot of harm. I am sure if anyone spoke to a group of teenagers, they would get a range of differing views.
“I am deeply unhappy as this upsets a lot of the work we do in Huddersfield to promote harmony”.
The BBC said the report followed an interview with the head of MI5 Andrew Parker who warned of the terrorist threat from people born, brought up and schooled in the UK, but who still regard the country of their birth as their enemy.
