No Bible At Kindergarten Show And Tell.

Do you think a young child at a public school should be able to share religious texts during show and tell? What if the boy wanted to share the story of Noah's ark or some other insightful parable? Does separation of church and state mean that all religious material should be banned from public schools even when it has the opportunity to help students understand each other and their diverse backgrounds?
Is this censorship? Well a court in Pa. has ruled that a kindergartner at a Philadelphia public school cannot have his mother read passages from the Bible during his show and tell presentation...The court decided that the boy's free speech rights were not violated by the schools refusal to let him share his "favorite book"( the bible) because the classroom was a nonpublic venue and the children were very young... I think it's sad that the simple action of show-and-tell is being censored.... Do people who don't want their kids to hear about religion, whether Christian or otherwise, honestly believe that their kids will never hear about it? PLEASE!What Do You Think?
