Teaching Religious Freedom in Public School

By Kim Trobee (Citizenlink.com) Administrators and teachers around the country will be teaching students about religious freedom on January 16th. Every year since 1993, the president of the United States has issued a proclamation recognizing Religious Freedom Day.

The Department of Education has released and updated guidelines for educators, but most teachers have no idea there is such a day, let alone that they can teach their students about their Constitutional freedom of religion.

Gateways to Better Education has taken the DOE guidelines and created resources for administrators, teachers, parents and students on their rights when it comes to celebrating Religious Freedom Day.
