But education as in school and knowledge must be secular.
So, have the school be required to advance (or "push") one of the options, ahead of the others? You know it's not entirely a secular world out there.

As soon as people are aware of the other options and get some background information they are free to learn more about the individual religious teachings from the religion itself.
Why would people have to seek a portion of their education outside of their school?

We don't really have to go into the topic of why religious teachings in schools is not the way to go, right?
Where better? Schools are places of education, growth, self-discovery. A student (hypothetically) might live in a small town, where education in her faith of choice is otherwise unavailable. She could take it in public school as an elective perhaps.
