I work in a public school. I have praying co workers with me. We know what our duties are, and we follow along, but we know some of the things presented to us, are not christ centered.

Thank you for sharing. So, how then do you reconcile this with your faith? I teach in public schools as well, but I'm becoming more and more concerned about its impact on my primary calling to the Gospel. The way we do our jobs will always be influenced by our worldview as humans, and while I understand my limitations according to what the school system has laid before me, I'm seeing some things coming that I cannot ignore or implement in good conscience. I'm concerned, and curious as to how other Christians are dealing with this as well.

Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
