Montgomery County, MD (LibTardia).....

http://www.islamonline.com/news/articles/36/Wash-Post-Editor...

Why is it that Montgomery Liberal County will give holidays for Christian and Jewish occasions, but not for Islam?

"Muslim leaders in Montgomery County stress that, in petitioning school officials to set aside an Islamic holy day as an official day off, they are not advocating for any of the currently recognized holidays to lose their designations. The unwillingness to broach that possibility is understandable, given the sensibilities and traditions attached to these holidays. But the issues of fairness and equity raised in the county’s debate over when schools should close require renewed scrutiny of a calendar that may no longer be relevant given changing demographics."

Test scores show that American students will benefit from more days off from school.

Pleasure to see a community assert itself, from France to Maryland.

Enjoy....
