religion in a public school – excellent!!

This NPR story discusses a great start in one California school to teaching kids about different religion. I hope it catches on elsewhere.

Modesto, California’s school district is the only place in the country where students are required to take a course on religion. To avoid conflict and controversy, school officials worked together with religious leaders in their community to come up with a broad-based curriculum that everyone signed off on. The results are being watched by education experts around the country.
