Report Virginia school district shut down over Arabic calligraphy in Politics/Current Events Posted December 19, 2015 · Edited December 19, 2015 by forte 11 minutes ago, LeftCoastMom said: Once again...read my post. I said that particular choice for calligraphy assignment was poor. However...the kids studying religion shouldn't learn about it? Teaching evolution, or that Europeans did not invent everything useful in the world, or just about anything ...causes a reaction from someone....I'm not to teach it? Teaching world history is different than having kids personally write a declaration of faith. Personally, I do not want my kids coming home with a piece of paper declaring Jesus as their Saviour, in any language. All this has little to do with the public education.
