More Public Schools' Craziness
Today, I saw John Gibson on FoxNews discussing his new book, The War on Christmas: How the Liberal Plot to Ban the Sacred Christian Holiday Is Worse Than You Thought. He noted that while many secularists claim that the Christmas Holiday is really a winter holiday, they know they are lying to themselves. His point was that holidays in the schools exist because they know no one will show up if they are not there. As a current employee of a non-traditional school, I can say that this is the absolute truth. We just gave the entire school a three day break for the Islamic holiday, Ramandan. Was this because we were trying to promote Islam? Certainly not! It was simply because we were told by the Muslim students (who represent the majority) that they would not be coming, regardless of whether the school was open. The administrators hands were tied. So the holiday was given to all.
This just goes to show that once again, there is evidence that our school systems are now proving grounds for advanced liberal agendas. When will the madness stop?!!
