School Holy Days

The ACLU is suing a school district on behalf of Muslims and Hindus who oppose closing schools on Jewish holidays. When should schools close for holy days?

6%  They should close for none of them.
23%  They should close only if a significant number of students would miss school.
44%  They should stay open for all of them, but allow students and teachers 5 personal days for religious observances.
9%  Other.

NOTE: Take the above results with a grain of salt. Unlike the scientifically designed and implemented polls that you see on the evening news, open Web polls such as this one are notoriously unscientific. We use them as a fun and interactive way of generating discussions.
