What about My Holidays

Reading the Quran

(Kathleen Cook/Special to The Morning Call)

Muslims across the country are being more assertive and seeking parity as far as holiday observance by local school districts. This could be a good thing or this could be a bad thing. As long as Muslim students have the ability to celebrate their Eids without it being a detriment to them academically, we should probably be content for now. Making Eids a holiday in which school is closed would benefit those that are non-Muslim, especially since we are not in a predominantly Muslim nation.
