On this segment of "Living Questions", ours series exploring faith and religion in contemporary life, we talk about religious accommodation and religious freedom in public schools.  Should school systems celebrate the major holidays of religions other than Christianity and Judaism? Or, is it more appropriate for public schools to disassociate themselves from any and all religious considerations when formulating the annual school calendar. Tom Hall is joined in the studio by Dr. Homayra Ziad, the Muslim Scholar at the Institute for Christian & Jewish Studies, and Peter Danchin, a professor of law at the University of Maryland Law School, who has worked with a research project called Politics of Religious Freedom.
