Teacher Ordered to Remove Reagan Quote from Classroom or be Fired

14 Jan

crossesFriends,

You know stories like this don’t even surprise me anymore because it’s common place now. In New York, a superintendent orders a teacher to remove a Ronald Reagan quote from her classroom wall that mentions God or be fired.


“The mandate letter signed by the district superintendent also requires that Silver not mention anything of God or Christianity to her students. The letter reads, “Except for wearing religious jewelry, such as a cross, I am also directing you to refrain from all other forms of communication with students during the school day (whether verbal, email, texting, written, etc.) that would conflict with your duty to show complete neutrality toward religion and to refrain from promoting religion or entangling yourself in religious matters.”

Also:

“Despite the fact that Silver is the faculty adviser for the student Bible Study Club, she is also instructed to remove additional scriptural posters and the club’s prayer box. Concerning this, the letter reads, “Consequently, if you choose to continue monitoring the Bible Study Club next school year, you must carefully re-examine [district policies], so that you can better protect that club from being disciplined and possibly banned. Under no circumstances should you participate in the club’s meetings or activities. Likewise, under no circumstances should you permit any club activities that could be interpreted as being promoted or sponsored by yourself, or the larger district for which you work.”

After the Democratic National Convention voted against having God mentioned in their platform at their 2012 convention, no one should be surprised. The teacher has filed a federal lawsuit & I am adding her to my prayer list.
