I personally think that each person should have to choice to partake in any (or no) religion of their choosing. It is a very personally matter that should be made individually. So it really bugs me when evangelical parents send their kids to schools that indoctrinate impressionable children with religion. This brainwashing children, and this indoctrination takes away their right to choose their own beliefs. I can't see how any parent could condone this. Don't impress your beliefs on others, including your own children.

...what the hell kind of public schools do you go to where Islam is not only part of the curriculum but is taught to be wonderful?
Link, it is happening all over the country.
Why is it that specifics are so difficult to come by lately...
Enforcing the belief of ANY religion in a public school violates the First Amendment. Contrary to what you may think, the "Islamic illuminati" is not trying to brainwash your children in school.
Private Christian schools on the other hand....
Until we get the Islamic equivalent of "Jesus Camp" in the US, call me skeptical Loli...
It is true that private schools tend to enforce rules much better, but I still disagree with indoctrination. As for political "indoctrination", it would depend on your location really e.g. Are you in California or Texas?. It would make a difference.

So there's no harm in waiting until the child is old enough to make an informed decision before doing so, right?
It's really a matter of perspective. You seem to really value your religion, and you seem quite dedicated to it. So, I do not think that you would react positively if your parents sent you to a school where, say, fundamentalist Islam was enforced.
