American public schools should refrain from strongly promoting any one type of holiday celebration if it is a religious holiday. If we celebrate Christmas while in school than anyone who celebrates Hanukkah and other religious holidays will feel left out, or awkward even. I think it would be fun for them to celebrate as just the word, "holiday" but not label any one.
I think that American public
schools should celebrate every holiday from every religious group in order to
include everyone. Kids would love this
because it would give them a lot more days off.
Other cultures that are usually not included would love this because it
would make everyone truly equal.
There is nothing wrong with a religious holiday. These things have been a tradition for many years. The students will be happy to be out of school no matter what kind of name they call the holiday. The other students should take holidays as they see fit for their own religions as well.
