Religion Conflict is becoming more aggresive than ever, Defending one's Belief of its Religion is a never ending conflict until now, The effects that we see real time is that people dont known what is real or fake to this Conflict of religions , one of the best ways to stop this is to Educate Everyone Early about Everyone’s Religion 

In much of the western world, the doctrine of the separation of church and state has led us to believe that we can’t even mention religion in a public school. On the opposite end of the spectrum, some of the world’s countries still base the entire education of their children on a single religious framework; and dogmatically prohibit discussion of other ideas and traditions. Baha’is favor a moderate middle way, which includes instruction in the diverse spectrum of religious beliefs, but allows every student a broad base of knowledge that does not prescribe adherence to any particular belief system or restrict any student’s independent investigation of truth.

Most would agree that no public school should impose one set of religious beliefs on its students—that’s the main reason why the United States Supreme Court, for example, has banned prayer in schools; and why many European, African and Asian nations have made religious education optional rather than mandatory. They’ve realized that we can begin educating students about the teachings of religions if we do it in a neutral, scholarly way, without promoting any particular religion.

That objective approach occurs today in many colleges and universities when they offer courses in religious studies. However, we form our ideas and our prejudices much sooner than that, often adopting ill-informed misunderstandings about religion early in life. If we universally taught young children the basic teachings of the world’s major Faiths in their primary or secondary school curricula, it could have a major impact, in just a generation, on reducing religious conflict in the world. The Baha’i teachings address that positive potential by calling for a universal global curriculum of study, the same for both girls and boys, which would help establish a common framework for understanding around the world:

Education is essential, and all standards of training and teaching throughout the world of mankind should be brought into conformity and agreement; a universal curriculum should be established, and the basis of ethics be the same. – Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 182.
