  • Sufism and other religions should be taught in American schools

    There are currently a small number of cultural and religious traditions introduced in the American education system. This is a shame, because students are not exposed to the wide diversity of belief and human experience across the world. Religions like Sufism should be taught so that students have a richer outlook.

  • Sufism instruction can't alleviate the ills plaguing American schools.

    While I don't deny that Sufi's are able to teach at American public schools. I don't believe that Sufism instruction would help alleviate and of the "ills" within US public school systems. Furthermore, I am certain that there are strict interpretations of the constitution which reject the teaching of any theological doctrine, in a non-secular manner, within our public schools.

  • Religion has no place in schools

    The idea that Sufism could help whatever problems exist in american schools is ludicrous. Sufism is related to spiritual teachings. Practicing Sufism alone or in a group may help guide a person through life's trials and tribulations. Schools are meant for secular subjects that will broaden each students experience based in real life.

  • Government sponsored religion.

    I can't talk about God in a school assignment, but the school can push Sufism? No, I do not think that the introduction of Sufism into American schools would reduce the sizable number of ills currently plaguing the American education system, because that would be another problem of government-chosen religion in the school.

  • A Big NO

    Sufism is a branch of Islam and if you think that the introduction of Sufism into American schools will reduce the sizable number of ills currently plaguing the American education system, you are flat out crazy. Church and state are separated in this country and people tend to complain when Christianity is included and now you (whoever you are) wants to present Islam in the school system. How on Earth do you think that will somehow be the miracle cure to the American education system. That just throws a whole new bag of problems into the system. It does NOTHING to solve any of the problems in the American education system.
