The school I substitute taught at had the moment of silence in the morning, and it was dead silent--even with a sub in there.  You just have to have punishment for those who violate the rules, as with any other school rule.  Kids can be made to shut up during anything with the right discipline.

This is true.  Someone could have made it work.

this 'reflection' period however will be turned into spit ball time...kids dont give a darn about meditation.

Agreed.  We had this at my schools and nobody gave a hoot.

Just to ask cause I really dont know...

Religion aside, under a voucher system, wouldn't a private school still be able to pick and choose its own students?  If so, then what do you do with those students who are unable to get into the private schools?  If were talking about getting better educations for every student, which is what vouchers are supposedly for, wouldn't it be better to improve our public schools instead of funneling students all around?

Yikes.  I've missed a lot.  LMNOP sort of jumped on it for me anyway.

But just so you know...I dont think that vouchers could be extended to religious schools anyway.  Doing so would violate our First Amendment rights. Americans should not be forced to subsidize religious education in any way.

Well, I don't wanna have the people tauting NO religion down my throat either.

there's rub for your kind, skippy.  can't have it both ways.  what particular religion, exactly, were you hoping governmment would choose to foist upon children?

To be repetetive: Vouchers solve this problem.

I dont like the idea of Vouchers.  I believe that they are detrimental to public schools.

People can believe in whatever they want, everyone is entitled to their own religiong, or not-religion if you will.

Yes and everyone is entitled to a religious-free education.

Parents should decide how much and what type of religion their child is exposed to.

This is one of the main reasons vouchers should be available.

should we also allow parents to decide what kind of history their child learns?  or math?  I think any parent who makes serious limitations on what religion their child can be exposed to is really doing their child an injustice.

Math and history aren't belief systems.

So what?!  Why is it bad for a child to be exposed to different belief systems and then pick for his/herself what to believe in?
