Support the movement of having Muslim holidays recognized in the school year, throughout the United States of America.
With the growing population of Muslims in the United States of America (including first, second, third, and fourth generation) we believe it is high time that Muslim holidays are recognized by schools throughout this nation. Unfortunately many Muslim families are forced to choose between their children's education and their religious obligations. Muslim school children and staff deserve the same benefits afforded to the followers of other faiths. We call on President Obama to support this petition and advance the inclusiveness of our great nation.
Yes i am
Then the US school system would have to recognize all Jewish, kwanzian, and satanist, amongst all the other holidays. I agree, it's bogus that school systems only go off the Christian holidays, but you are free to take leave of school for any religious holiday you want. If the government wasn't based on any kind of religion, I think overall this would be a better place. You can practice whatever you want, just can't shut down anything in the government because of it.
