What I do have a problem with is the timing, I have often heard diff teachers talk about the children 'waking up' and that being the reason they read the old testament at a particular age. I resently had an 'awakening' of my own when I heard the current 3rd teacher talk about her curriculum and how she will turn to the Bible for students questions about creation. I nearly fell out of my chair.
I posted all about in the tribes forum, under Any Atheist parents?
I am still undecided about whether my dds will attend grades, i guess it depends on the incoming 1st grade teacher. If she or he is some 'religious fanatic', we are out of there, i'll homeschool. The public schools in our town are at the top in the state but I LOVE LOVE Waldorf, everything except the religious side. They claim to be non-religious but that is not true, it really comes down to the individual teacher.
I'd love to chat with you more since we are almost in the same situation.
Thanks for sharing!
