This may be a problem when they take off the month of Rammadan
I think all Christian, Jewish, Wiccan, etc., holidays MUST also be observed.
Some jobs let them do it.
I know of a guy who just took a month off.
Hey, neat! Why don't we just fly the half-moon flag of Pakistan over the capitol in D.C.! Replace apple pie with chick pea mush! And change In God We Trust to In Allah We Trust.
I disagree with this decision on the grounds that public schools should only be recognizing secular holidays, or those that have been secularized like Christmas. I do, however, think Muslim students should be allowed to take these days off without penalty and teachers should be strongly encouraged not to schedule exams on religious holidays of any faith.
So let me see if I have this right. Becasue somone is pandering to a minority (less than 10% of those in the city's system) to be politically correct (I really dislike that phrase), everyone else has to suffer if there are snow days to be made up.
Why was it felt that there needed to be holidays added? The students and staff that claim Islam as their religion were already given the option of taking these days off without penalty.
What a bunch of crock! Other than Christmas, are there any other "religious holidays" observed? Been so long since I've been to school, I can't remember, but I don't think so.
Little by little.... bit by bit.... so slowly no one hardly pays any atention, but what you said is exactly what's happening.
You younger people with your live and let live, don't offend anyone, pacifist, politically correct attitudes, YOU are the ones that will have to live with it. Just don't complain when the Islamics quit "asking" and start "telling" you what they're going to do. Because then it will be too late.
