Diwali is the Hindu, Jain & Buddhist religion holiday. Now tens of thousands children & family have to choose to send kids to school or spend time with a family to celebrate religion holiday. Christian & Jewish children doesn't have to choose between valuable classroom time or celebrating religious day with their families. We are asking for a public school calendar that is reflective of the growing diversity of our communities so that students from various faith have a opportunity to observe their religious traditions without sacrificing their valuable classroom time.
