You hit it right on the head. thats one of the main reasons why I think it should be taught some how. But the powers that be wouldn't like that. Its just like smoking herb.

There are books about meditation without any reference to spirituality behind it, just a way to quiet the mind and nothing more. Working on your emotional stability would be a good thing. So no praying to a god, no speaking with your guides or reaching your higher self and any of that stuff. Neutral meditational techniques would be very good for the educational system i'd say.
It makes for a stronger mind, less prone to get sidetracked or mislead, that's exactly why it will never be in the society that we have now. Commercials would see a downfall in effectivity with a significant amount. Not even mentioning politicians and media that will be more hard pressed to get away with lying when the population knows how to control their own thoughtprocesses.

Actually my kids go to a Christian school and they are not scared or traumatized. They are in a very loving environment. I dont really send them there for the religious aspects as much as for the good care they get. Nobody is brain washing them. In fact, we discuss stuff at our house all the time to show there are more than one way to look at the world. For instance their school beleives in creationism but I simply show them the other view. When they get older they can decide. If they are going to be brainwashed somehow it seems better to let them get there brainwashed at their school instead of at a public school.

Videos like these must disgust you though:
Many camps are like this, sometimes the parents don't even know it.
They don't recognize their children when they return, they've turned
into mindless drones, mini fanatics that need years of therapy to be
returned to their normal selves.
