    Technically, yes

    Yes. In a few schools in California they have a required course in world religions. So long as it is taught as a humanitarian science (like philosophy and world cultures), it is perfectly legal to teach religion in a public school.

    Not in the term where it is just straight religion, teachers can get arrested for that. They can use it in a history lesson when they are talking about the Crusades or something in that matter.

    But, to the person who said Evolution, it is not a religion, it is science. We have made a theory, and it relates nothing to religion.

    Yeah, i had it when i was a kid. Every wednesday my beautiful day was ruined when a mouldy old woman would come in and shove religion down our throats.

  • yes, they just shouldnt teach religion in the science class

    only if they are speaking as an idea. Religion cannot be forced upon students.

    No. Seperation of church and state. First Amendment.
