You're right, they should also teach about Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Atheism etc etc etc.
What is wrong with being educated and knowledgeable about the world?
Education does does equate to conversion.

So, lets just teach maths 24/7 and ignore the other stuff? Or perhaps teach our kids *all* of this properly?
Maybe if some of you actually knew a little about Islam (rather than ISIS or the MSM line, there is a difference if you could be bothered to open your minds a little rather than just tarring all with the same myopic prejudiced brush) then this would not have tickled your ignorant outrage buttons so strongly.
This thread is just full of stupid, and you are one of the ones who seems smart elsewhere but when Islam gets involved, your brain just switches off.
A valid point, but I think mathematics might be a tad more important than islam and anything to do with it.
It's just that kids are growing up not being able to spell properly and someone thinking islam is important when they are dumb as posts isn't exactly a smart move.
While all of that is quite valid, the fact remains that kids have better and more important things to learn than religion.

The current system and curriculum is broken. Why varnish broken furniture, when you can restore it altogether?
