    Re: Religious Holidays in School

    Under the 'seperation of church and state' the school either needs to allow all religious holidays or have none. Giving one to muslims and not other faiths is not fair. Nor, technically complying with the law.

    Personally, I think you should have religious hollidays for all the major faiths. There's nothing wrong with it and it is an excellent oppertunity to learn more about each religion. Besides, if it is a true matter of faith the school board should respect it. This country was founded on religious freedoms. It would be nice to see that respected by the government for once.

    Just because you're the only Jew in your specific sschool or area, does not mean there are not Jews around you.

    U have to be senstive to other religions' holiday. If the holiday requires them to be away from the school then. They should allow it.

    Thanks for the siggy Ky-lyrra

    I think all this fuss it's both an excuse for the school board and the kids. On one hand you have a lot of kids who doesn't really care about other people's culture, and all they want is one more day off.

    For the district, one more day probably means more funding and it's all politics...I seriously believe they don't really care about your education. As a matter of fact back in my high school there was a big fuss over truancy. And why was that, not because our education was important, it was because attendance = funding...

    I am just being honest here, I personally don't know Cesar Chavez that much but I was glad he did what he did because he gave us another holiday on March 31st

    Oo.

    They don't need to announce a holiday for EVERYONE. "Yeah, everyone gets school off, because those three muslim kids over there are going to be celebrating Eid Al-Fitr, the biggest celebration in the muslim year. Since it's important to them, everyone gets the day off, okay?"

    That's dumb.

    The two or three muslims don't need to go to school that day. All they have to do is explain that to the attendance office. They can take their own little holiday. As long as they keep up with their studies, it's fine for those muslims to take the day off, right?

    Are you saying the school didn't allow them, and them only, to take the day off? THAT is wrong.
