Sunday school.I don't mind Scripture/Religion studies as a philosophy class in primary and early high school for regular public schools. As long as you have the right hippy teachers, it's a nice thing to have in the schedule, like PE, dance, health, design&tech, etc. In that respect it functions a bit like a chaplain or tutorial or group meet. It was one of the more questioning class environments I had in school, and some kids out there might need that in their lives. It would be one of the best class opportunities to dwell on big fears like climate change anxiety as long as the teacher isn't inappropriate, complemented by studies in the sciences and health-based subjects. I remember we learnt about many religions, listened to music, studied ethics, etc. Harmless. But yeah, depends on the school type, the individual teacher and the community expectations.
But as someone who came from church from early childhood, scripture class by comparison was toned down and basically curriculum Sunday school and essentially harmless. And that was back in the Howard era.
That is where religion should be taught.
Do they teach astrology in schools?
