Martin Luther King Day
I have a day off from work with all my kids in school - a pleasant break. I'm not going to suggest that they get the day off, but would it be so bad if in yeshiva kids were taught a little history of the civil rights movement and what King represented? Believe me, I am as far from liberal as you can get on issues of affirmative action, but one can be sensitive to issues of racism, tolerance, and respect for all people without entering that debate.
