    If you want God in your school, take the kids to a church school of your choice.
    Christianity isn't the only religion out there and the teachers aren't going to bow to every religion, so I agree it should not be in public schools.

    Requiring formal adherence to any religion is unconstitutional, I agree. But what has gone on in public schools over the last few decades isn't just maintaining a neutrality toward religions but has crossed over into overt hostility toward not just a religion but to the very idea of religion. When I was young (70s) in NY we went (in sequence over the span of a few years) from a minute or prayer to minute of silence to a minute sitting quietly to teachers stopping any child who tries to pray before eating or punishing those who write essays about their belief system. Truthfully, a parent who wants a well educated child who isn't taught hostility toward religion but who also isn't forced to worship in an unwelcome way is better off sending their child through the Catholic school system than the public school system, at least in NYC. The Church schools are much more tolerant in general to the idea of religion than the public schools which reek of official disapproval (which is also unconstitutional BTW).

    I also agree that parents should consider parochial schools...and should be able to use their school tax assessment for their own kids' schooling of their choice - tuition vouchers are a good idea that does not turn the US into a theocracy as critics would have you believe.

    I have to agree with you.
    As I had said previously, I was raised in an strict Catholic upbringing and during my senior year in Catholic High School we had a course on non-Christian religions that explored several different beliefs. With all the PC crap and thin-skinned snowflakes out there, something like that would NEVER fly in a public high school.
