New London School Calendar to Recognize Muslim Holidays
An advocacy group is welcoming New London's recognition of Muslim school holidays in its calendar for the next school year.
The calendar lists certain Muslim and Jewish holidays as days when observing students can be excused for absences. It also asks teachers not to schedule tests on those dates.
The Connecticut chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Monday that including the Islamic holidays will serve to enhance the learning environment for Muslim students.
