The Cambridge School district in Massachusetts has voted to close school to observe a Muslim holiday. This is the first school district in the state to do this. This same request has come up in my school district and has not been approved. The holiday will be observed for the first time November 11, 2011. My question is should other school districts adopt this policy? We celebrate Christian and Jewish holidays shouldn’t we do the same for Islamic holidays? Tell me what you think.
Should Schools Close for Muslim Holidays?
