How badly do some Christian parents want their children to remain ignorant?
In Bakersfield, California, one parent refused to let a child do his homework — learning about Islam in a World History class — because, I assume, education goes against the family’s faith:
As if kids aren’t already inundated with Christianity all throughout the school day… but to the parent’s point, the state’s standards show that Christianity is taught in school. And just as with Islam, there’s no proselytizing taking place. Just some basic ideas that will allow students to better understand what motivates various historical figures and events.
At least no one’s encouraged the kid to fail the class on purpose yet.
In the meantime, we should all light a candle or something for the poor teacher who has to deal with this parent.
