  1. My personal thought being that as part of “social studies” kids should learn about every possible religion, inclusive of atheism. Education is to expose thoughts and ideas to enable the munchkins to start thinking for themselves.

    In the end, I’ve no doubt that they will continue to try and indoctrinate or kids. But as the population dynamics shift, will they want them being taught by catholic nuns in public school, or the quaran?
