I'm working on a memorandum on the role and treatment of religious holidays in public schools. One source suggests that teachers should "avoid asking students to explain their beliefs and customs." Mind you, this dialogue would be taking place during instruction on religious holidays and the like. Clearly intimidation or making students feel uncomfortable should be avoided, but not encouraging them to analytically articulate a paradigm??? What kind of education should the public school encourage -- think about some things but not other things???

Moderns and their desire to compartmentalize .....
