If you do not mind me saying, I think one needs to educate children at home as well and not let the school system teach any subject without the parental supervision. There are many harmful things children can learn these days in or out of school. My kids do not go to public school so I cannot specifically comment this situation but I do not think one should let person opinions govern another that when it just touches on the surface of a topic. Religion cannot be taught in a few hours or days. To grasp the complete concept takes a little more time and understanding. Specifically in this situation, much of the views of Islam is limited and presented without it time relevant context. There is good in religion and one needs to find the proper method of worship if that is the direction chosen. Public schools have so much to cover and are not in the business of indoctrinating its students. I would not be too worried about your children. I think if you can facilitate acceptance and understanding that this there are many individuals views which are harmful and we must concentrate and extract the good in all things. As your children grow up they will get bombarded with so many decisions that may upset parents. In the grad scheme of things religion is very low on that scale.
