Michigan Elementary School Forced To End Lunchtime Bible Study
After a complaint filed by a civil rights group, Hudsonville schools have shut down a teacher-led lunchtime Bible study.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
The teacher didn't think he was doing anything wrong because the 5th grade Bible study group he led met at lunchtime- not during classroom hours. WBCK.com reports the Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists saw it differently and now, Hudsonville Public Schools have ended the practice after a complaint.
This raises a lot of questions:
- Is Bible study appropriate for 5th graders?
- Should the teacher have asked permission?
- It seems ending the talks has settled the matter; should further action be taken?
