There are over 100,000 Muslims in Connecticut, and yet their major holidays, Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, aren't being observed by schools. Muslim students have always had to choose between honoring the sacred days on their calendar or attending school, which is a choice no student should ever have to make. Others agree with me; that is why Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that all schools in New York City will close to observe Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha and that is why New Jersey City mayor Steve Fulop has noted that not closing schools for a Muslim holiday is a ‘missed opportunity’. Therefore, all public schools in CT should be closed on both Eid holidays.
