I would much rather kids learn about all religions and if you are that desperate for your child to learn about religion then you could do it yourself.
At my daughter's school, it's had an hour a week on a Friday and at the p&c we've just discussed ethics classes. I would still rather my kids learn about all religions than ethics classes. I wish they could change it.
I don't know a lot about religious studies in schools (I don't have school aged children) and I think parents should be responsible. You don't have to be in a private school to learn about religion, this is something you can teach at home.
If it is/was to be taught to my child I would want them to learn about ALL religions and not be told that others are superior. I believe that with knowledge comes understanding and acceptance and hope that beliefs like 'all Muslims are terrorists' would disappear with our children's generation. I don't feel I know enough about other religions to teach my child.
We don't have them at ds school.
If we did, I would have no issue with him attending . It wouldn't bother me.
