Should religion be aloud to make it inside of the schools of our children or should all religion be band from all schools? What's your point of view let me know.

No, not at all. Church is supposed to be separated from state, schools (at least public) are a function of the state. Therefore, no religion.

I understand where your coming from but I would have to say that I disagree with you. I believe that you(people in general) should be able to have the right to express your religion and beliefs if you so feel the desire. (not to get confused with teaching or anything like that just general students). I mean I don't think religion should be completely band from all school teaching it is one thing you have to respect others beleifs in that area, but as for in general I really don't understand why people let it be a problem. I mean we have the right to believe whatever we want to believe where ever we want to believe it and I think that is how it should be.

I don't believe any religion shuold be forced on any person. I think schools should make the choice of not teaching religion at all or teaching about all of them, with no emphasis on a particular one. Of course, that would be difficult for some people because for example, if you are a teacher and your own religion is Christian, you may have a biased view and gear all teaching more towards Christianity. I think children should be allowed to practice their own religions within reason. If the religious practice is against school rules, then school rules should take presedence.

I agree with you however I do believe that if a student should want to express there belief at school or live by them then that should be able tp happen. To suppress something is never a good thing.
