I think that both parents and schools should only teach kids the very basic things they'd need to lead a successful and rewarding lifestyle, and the abilities that allow these kids to make up their own decisions once they reach the age of consent, when they are mature and educated enough to decide on their own, without someone else imposing their beliefs onto them.
Do you believe that schools should teach both scientific facts based on logic, reason, and reality and also teach beliefs as a cultural lesson?

We only have time for truth rather than information

Time studying Christianity should be equivalent to time spent studying Judaism or Buddhism, or whatever. It should be taught from an anthropologist’s point of view.
Must we waste valuable class time discussing every little dime store theology that came down the pike?
