You mean the school that you're forced to attend?

So now we're saying that compulsory education is also an infringment on someone's religion?

Ask the Amish. They believe only in the necessity of children learning how to read, write, and do basic math. In most states with a major Amish population, school attendance is only compulsory through the 8th grade. In a number of states, they are allowed to operate their own schools (normally one-room) using their own teachers and techniques, with only limited state requirements and supply of curriculum. It's a compromise, in some cases worked out only after major legal battle over the conflict between 'cumpulsory education' and the religious beliefs of the Amish.
