I received an email from a public high school teacher in Red Wing, Minnesota, with an interesting story to tell. He teaches a critical course on religion, which he describes as "extremely rare and controversial." I bet it is!

I love the idea of high school students being encouraged to think critically about something as divisive as religion. I would not think that very many communities would allow such a thing. He notes that it has not been easy and that conservatives in the community have fought it every step of the way.

He's now got a blog set up to share his experiences: Teach Not Preach. Check it out if the subject matter sounds interesting to you.
