Just reading this, I feel shamefully naked, stripped of everything Catholic. Some excerpts:
"The new mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, has recently begun a big and well-financed push for universal prekindergarten education...The effort is going to require a lot of help from private schools...But here's the rub: The city has issued rules about how religious schools must conduct their business if they want to participate."
"...unless it is impracticable, schools would be required to remove or cover up religious signs, names and symbols at the school entrance, and also in classrooms and other areas where the pre-K students are taught."
"Religious instruction would be forbidden. Schools could use the Bible in class, but it would have to be presented 'objectively as part of a secular program of instruction.'"
