Summer’s nearly over, and that means time for back-to-school! It’s natural for humanists to be very concerned about the state of education today. Young adults may consider themselves humanist or atheist now, but there’s a good chance that they may revert back to the religion that they were raised, especially when big life changing events such as marriage or having children come into play.
