    Religious education for children is a controversial issue, especially in secular states. We discuss if religion should be taught in public schools and the importance of religious education. Should religion be taught in schools? Historically, it is difficult to deny the importance of religious education. During the Middle-Ages, most education.   Religious education is important because it equips students with cultural, social, moral and spiritual knowledge that aids in mental and physical development within society. The lessons learned in religious education prepare students for responsibilities, experiences and opportunities later in life.

      The main point is that religion should be for the church and home, not for the public school system. Indeed, religion is a major part of America, but there should be a fine line between church and state and this is where this line should be drawn: between religion and education (Gaylor, ).   Religion isn’t the best thing to discuss in school. Discussing religion at school can ruin friendships and cause arguments. So keep your churches, religions and beliefs at home. But others think it’s OK for religion to be discussed – within reason. “I think religion could be discussed as long as teachers are not promoting a religion.

      1. religion can be put in schools but only as an elective class as in God , it cannot be mixed with science or anything other than a religion class. 2. it should be kept out of gov. because if we were to look to the bible to make laws, gays would not be allowed to get married, intelligant design would be taught in the science classroom, and.   Jabberwocky. A textbook is a collection of the knowledge, concepts, and principles of a selected topic or course.

Why we should keep religion in our schools by Peter Cousins Download PDF EPUB FB2

Christians believe that God is everywhere and is involved in our lives at every moment, whether we publicly acknowledge God or not. Most of the teachers I’ve met in public schools are people of faith. For many, their faith shapes how they approach their work as teachers.

Religion may be presented as part of a secular educational program. Programs that "teach about religion" are geared toward teaching students about the role of religion in the historical, cultural, literary and social development of the United States and other nations.

These programs should instill understanding, tolerance and respect for a pluralistic society. What she found is that teaching about religion in public schools is important, and not only can it make a difference for religious minorities, but it can also renew a dialogue between religious leaders of all types on how we might work together toward peace and justice in the public realm.

7 Reasons We Should Teach More Religion in Public Schools. Teachers in the suburban town of Wellesley, Massachusetts spend half the school year teaching the world’s religions to.

Christianity was the only accepted religion at his primary school. “If schools cannot accommodate more than one religion then we should take out religion in our education system; it should be gone.

With today’s constitutional law, everyone is allowed to choose what they want and which religion to affiliate themselves with.

Schools should teach religion. What they shouldn't teach is faith. a Christian band’s singers urged us to proclaim our love for Jesus at a special assembly. though we knew the school. Although faith schools do perform better than other state schools in terms of examination results, the difference in school performance largely disappears once one takes into account the profile of young people who attend these schools (e.g socio-economic background, early achievement, whether the school was the parents’ preferred school for their child).

This suggests that the superior academic performance of faith schools. Religion should be allowed in schools. (This is my opinion not evidence) I think there should be a choice. Children in elementary school, They can't really decide and what classes they take so i say that the school sends a letter to the parents to says if it's OK to have them in the class.

Most people who believe religion should be allowed in schools think that there should be prayers in schools, Biblical discussions -- things that tend to be found in private, religious schools.

That's not what I'm saying should exist in our public school system. What I think should. When taken in context and compared with his other writings, there can be no way to believe that he meant that government should forcibly keep religion out of its schools. The Founding Fathers clearly intended that religion (and Christianity in particular) be openly taught in the public school system.

Therefore, so long as religion remains a force in societies around the world, and because literature and history reflect religion’s extensive influence, it only makes sense that students in American public schools understand world religions and even get to know the Bible and other sacred texts as literature to analyze.

Religion is private, and schools are public, so it is appropriate that the two should not mix. To introduce religion in our public schools builds walls between children who may not have been aware of religious differences before. Why Should Schools Be Neutral.

Our public schools are for all children, whether Catholic, Baptist, Quaker, atheist. Question: Why is religion important in schools.

Answer: Unless the school is a church run private school religion has only one important in schools and that is the historical impact on the culture being discussed, whether in a History class or a L. It seems as if the Florida legislature has crossed a dangerous line.

When Sen. Gary Siplin (D-Orlando) proposed S.B. 98, not only did he propose to impede on the religious expression of Florida public school students, but also upon the separation between church and state that I, along with many political advocacy organizations, have worked so passionately to safeguard.

That knowledge is most durable, and religious instruction most useful, when imparted in early life. That the Bible, when not read in schools, is seldom read in any subsequent period of life.

My arguments in favor of the use of the Bible as a schoolbook are founded. Response: Many opponents to church/state separation try to claim that God was "kicked out of schools" back in the s — that God was somehow a part of the standard school day in the s and earlier, but in the evil s God was removed.

Since then, it is further alleged, every social ill has gotten worse, and the reason for that can be found precisely at the moment when God was.

We need more religion in our schools, not less The book is called Gimson’s Kings and Queens so many factors about why we are who we are –. Following two U.S. Supreme Court decisions in andorganized prayer was banned in all American public schools.

This in itself has caused controversy, but so has the actual teaching of. While students are attending public schools they should be aware of their religion options.

The student should have the right to practice their religion as they please, just on the own time. Yes, religion plays a huge part in molding a person but, should be practiced when the. It is not a question of "should"- it is illegal to teach religion in public schools with a very minor exception.

The exception is this: IF the class is a comparative religion class that promotes no particular belief AND is taught by someone who keeps their own opinions completely out of the course AND the course is completely elective.

"Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our Country." Since that landmark case of Engel v. Vitale, the Supreme Court has issued a series of rulings that may result in the elimination of organized observances of any religion from America's public schools.Our public schools arbitrarily define science as explaining the world by natural processes alone.

In essence, a religion of naturalism is being imposed on millions of students. They need to be taught the real nature of science, including its limitations. Biblical literacy, which is to say a basic, functioning knowledge of the stories of the Bible, is essential to have a full understanding of how our society works and why it differs so dramatically.
