I am going to keep this short at simple due to a lack of a response from my adversary.
Religion being taught does not negate empirical evidence
I shall concede this point right off the start because I agree entirely with the stance, that religion has no place in the science room and some other class rooms. Creationism and other beliefs should not be taught as alternative beliefs in school. I concede this because it does not effect my my contentions.
Keep in Mine we are also talking about school. School can include elementary, highschool, and colleges. 
Alternative ways to teach and educate children about religion
While we need to separate children from the notion that creationism and other such beliefs are valid and empirical forms of evidence, we should not separate them from learning about different cultures and their beliefs. Learning about how the world operates is not just based in math, and science, but can be way broader. Teaching them about how different cultures interact with each other and what the believe goes beyond the scope of a history class and be taught in a course about religion. This is no different than some college classes, and can even be offered as an elective in high school. A majority of colleges already have this in place. 
Taking religion out of school is a violation of freedom of religion
Freedom of religion is a constitutional right that is guaranteed to us in the United States of America. I am keep this within that scope of location so that this argument holds sound.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." 
We can teach religion as an elective in school and help educate students about the world around them. It serves no harm and is not forcing them to take the class, but offers it as a valid credit for those wanting to learn about different world religions. This does not effect any empirical evidence being taught in other classes, and is a class all by itself.
My adversary kept his argument so short, that I do not feel the need to go more in depth than this.
