Environmentalism, Religion, Public Schools and the Filling of Vacuums

My son is six years old. His school experience is VERY different from mine.

He knows far more about Martin Luther King, Jr. than he does about either Washington or Lincoln. (But that’s okay. At least he knows about one great man from American history.)

They don’t talk about Christmas. But they do talk about what people do around the globe at approximately the time of Christmas, even in Israel! But they don’t mention Christmas because of the church-state thing.

They certainly do not pray or talk about God at all.

The songs they learn are almost always silly songs relating to what bugs do or monkeys and alligators.
