Lately, schools have ignored te importance of including the religion subject into teir curriculum, they are more focusing on science or . I think this subject has important role in the students' daily life, the point of teaching may prevent criminals, stress, or bad behavior to the students. So, do you think this kind of subject should be an obligation to the schools ?

I think it isn't important... learn something about religion you can do it in a church or in your own home with your familly or with your friends in anywhere.... but not at the school. I had Studied in a Catholic School for all my life. I learned a lot of things about this religion. It isn't important to me I think... I hate all my religion classes... it was boring... i didn't like so much.

Hmm... I can't say that's a bad thing that you hate most of your religion classes. However, don't you do pray (in your faith) everyday ? I also think studying in a religion-based school is boring enough except you wanna be a religious man or a "messenger" of your own faith.

A school should be a place for the wholistic development of the learners. That development should not only be purely mental and physical but also spiritual because man is both body and spirit. However, for the purpose of fairness and respect to one's faith and belief, especially in highly heterogenous school, offering a religioous subject should be properly planned. The best planning is one that involves all the religions in that school through their representatives. What the school should provide is freedom for everyone to practice one's religion.

That's right, the most important thing is "practice" after all. Students must apply what they've been taught especially to respect each other who has different religion.

I think that it would be optional, but no obligatory. Who dont want to learn religion must learn another subject like moral or etic.

yes, this type of subject is very necessary in schools & colleges because religion is the basic fundamental of a human it builds its moral ,loving,sacrificing & kind attitude it should be made an obligation
