I don't think they should, that is what specific schools are for. If you want to learn about religions, go to a religious school, i'm pagan but i really hate hearing that kind of stuff during school. What about you guys?

I couldn't have said it better myself!
- I think that it should be open as an elective. More like a religious studies class so that students who do want to learn about other faiths and religions can take it if they would like to, and other students don't have to worry about it being pushed onto them.

- It depends on your definition of "teach". Teach, as in apply the concepts? Absolutely not. Teach as in educate on other cultures, of course. There is no need to go way in depth about the beliefs of other faiths or read their religious texts, but teaching about how religion affects people differently around the world is vital to being a culturally educated person.
