    The scheduling of this even is based on religious considerations. The school I used to teach at told teachers not to schedule exams on Jewish holidays, but didn't give similar consideration for Catholics on Holy Thursday/Good Friday.

    The hypocrisy regarding treatment of Christians vis a vis other faiths in public life in the U.S. is disgusting, and even more disgusting that many liberals support the hypocrisy...
    Ummm...good Friday is a school holiday, usually is also spring break...

    So there is a basis for scheduling around religious observations.

    So how long till the ACLU sues the School on "Separation of Church and State" grounds?

    This is just disgusting, a school holding official events based around religion, in the USA? Where we have rules against such!!!

    Double-Standard PC BULL**** was responsible for this outrage.
    And that Christmas vacation and Easter break.... and all those Jews taking a day off for their high holiday...

    Vicchio, your comments are the highest form of bigotry and ignorance.... disgusting.

    What are you so afraid of? How do these folks in Dearborn effect your life one bit?

    Where's the double-standard?

    Perhaps in your school district, but not where I taught...

    Christmas is a national holiday, in case you didn't remember, and more often than not, it is now called New Year vacation.

    You get Easter Break? Really? I never did. And BTW, Easter falls on a Sunday.

    Nice try, though...
    My point is that the fact that school is held monday through friday is convenient for those faiths that observe the sabbath on saturday or sunday. However, mere convenience does not rise to the level of an establishment of religion. I know that at my high school, we also practiced on saturdays (and had games on saturdays) but never on sundays. I just don't see how this is any different.

    This IS organized. Good practices are HIGHLY organized by a faculty member of the school. That is far more organized than a short student-led prayer before a match...
    I think that engaging in actual prayer is much different than simply practicing at a different time.

    Well, they would miss practice because of their faith. It's safe to assume that if these students were not muslim, that they wouldn't miss practice. You can't have these kids practice during the day, unless you want dead high school football player headlines in the news. The school is making the best out of a complicated situation.

    Think about it...

    Why do schools either give the week before Easter or the week after Easter off? Spring break? It's all about the bunny.

    Christmas (one day) is indeed a National Holiday... which schools observe with a two-week break. And most people still call that -- CHRISTMAS VACATION.

    The point you seem to have missed is schools all over the country observe Christian holidays -- or schedule their semesters around the Christian tradition.

    Adjusting 2-a-day FB practices so that all the team participants can make practice is hardly the big deal Vicchio and his far-right sources are trying to make it out to be.
