Reader feedback: Keep religion out of schools

Re: Catholic Church hopes for three new treaties with Vatican, By Martina Pisárová, Vol 8, No 42, Nov 4 to 10

I think that the Slovak government should start putting its money elsewhere. They would be much better off paying people to teach music and helping kids buy musical instruments.

If the government wants to fund religion classes then all religions should be available to be studied. There is a big difference between catechism classes and studying a religion and it's written works, etc. with a purpose to educate, not to convert or make someone a member of a particular church.

This goes for any religion and I think that Slovaks still have a big problem in seeing the difference between these two things. If they want to study a particular religion they should be able to do that in college.
