“Christ died on the cross” This is what Christians say, and what most of them want schools teach to students.. We can see how cultures form all around the world involve us; also, these changes influence on everyone’s point of view, as some want to believe in something and others do not. Christianims, Judaisms, Jehovah’s Witness, Catholism and Atheism are some of practices that people must respect and not try to judge. Parents think school is a place where people can prepare for future, and the place where we can express our ideas with not repression. Moreover, school sometimes oblige people to think in the way society thinks, so they do not allow to think in a different way. Religion is important for the society development, but it has become into a hot topic that nobody would like to talk about.

Besides, Humans Rights have stated that schools should not sponsor prayer, Bible reading or any other form of religious worship because that is a violation of the above mentioned right. Therefore, schools should not maintain the position of teaching religion with doctrinal facts and try to convince students to change their point of views.

Home is the place where religion should be taught, because parents can expose their thoughts to children freely, taking about God, and others emphasized things, so they can be in a warm environment. According to Greg Sherman homeschooling is the best way of teaching religious, because specific questions can be successful answers without confrontation by an outsider, he also say our values about learning were quite different from those of the schools in which we worked.
