So I am very agnostic about religion. I want my kids to learn about religion but not to be taught that one way is the right way. I think it is really important for kids to understand religious believes but have the choice about what they do, or not believe.
Why is it then that at primary school they just default to Christianity? Sure they learn about the other religions but it is almost assumed that unless they have other beliefs then they must belief in Christianity.I have to take the morning off work on Friday to go and see an Easter service in church because my eldest is performing in it. That has pissed me off as I only go to church for weddings and funerals, I'd rather use time off to ride my bike (I'd rather do lots of things before I choose to go to church) She has to read prayers. I'm not going to prevent her doing it as I don't want her to be singled out as the only one not taking part but I see no evidence of her being taught that this is just one version of what people believe.
Am I unreasonable? I did speak to her teacher about it and she share my views but this doesn't translate into the classroom.
