Philadelphia schools add two Muslim holidays
by Tricia L. Nadolny
The Philadelphia School District will add two Muslim holidays to its calendar, placing it among the first in the nation to do so.
In what would be an even rarer step, Mayor Kenney said Tuesday he also hopes to adopt the holidays for city workers. He has created a task force to determine how the change can be accomplished.
A spokesman from the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Washington said his group is not aware of any cities that have included the holidays, Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, in their municipal calendars.
