Bulgarian Orthodox Christians rally for religious education
« on: September 24, 2010, 02:24:00 PM »
Ten thousand people turned out at a rally in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia. The march was led by the Bulgarian Orthodox Patriarch, Maxim.

The attendees called for religious education from the very beginning of public schooling at nursery school, up to and including the twelfth grade.

Religion at school is a bad thing.

I would say it's just boring, not bad. In my experience.

Here in the UK Religious Education is compulsory for every year group. That's how I earn my living. Even parents who are not themselves followers of a religion seem to appreciate their children knowing about faith. In six years of full-time teaching I have never met a parent who is opposed to their child being in my classes.
