I was reading a book recently that had some history of the educational system in the US.
There was some evil stuff in there. About the Ivy League profs that wrote the most influential books of their times regarding how education should be handled. They were in bed with the corporate tycoons, like Carnegie and Rockefeller. They were creating a dumbed down populace to work for the industrialists.
BTW: The govt doesn't need to raise anybodies children, they can't even balance their checkbook.

Making it impossible to learn about religion in school, even in a social studies setting where such a thing belongs, means that there is a major facet of other peoples' lives that our kids won't know about.
