So, when's time off for Hanukkah? Yom Kippur?

Since these are public schools - funded with my tax dollars, along with the tax dollars of a lot of other people of all faiths and no faith - when do I get to have a day off for Yom Kippur? What about Diwali? And what about an entire month for Ramadan?

This is ridiculous. This is a public school. What's the deal with being unbiased and impartial to all students?

If you want to have Christmas time off, go to a private school. But public schools serve ALL students, regardless of religion, and it would be the right thing to do to make sure we respect that.

What 'rights' is this moron on the School Board talking about? No one is taking the holiday off the calendar. If anything, she's infringing on my right as a taxpayer at a PUBLIC school.

Religious freedom for her, but not for everyone else who doesn't believe in what she does.
