Freshman English

My  son's English class had to read a book dealing with the Zodiac. This is against the teaching that we have taught our children. While we want our children to know about other beliefs, we found it extremely disturbing that our son had to write his horoscope everyday for weeks while his teacher who believes in this stuff tdaily talked in-depth about her own horoscope.  As stated, we want our children to have knowledge of others practices outside of Christianity, but strongly oppose being made to practice such on a daily basis an area that we feel goes against everything we believe.
