When I was a child there was never any question but that the teacher got the benefit of a doubt.
A Detroit-area woman is accusing her children’s school of hypocrisy after her son was told not to bring his Bible to class and her daughter’s teacher distributed worksheets referencing alcohol.What a shame that is no longer the case.
Jessica Cross, of Dearborn Heights, her 8-year-old son, Jason, would take his Bible to school to read during a free period. He was eventually told that book is “only for church, not school,” MyFoxDetroit.com reported.
In an interview with MyFoxDetroit.com, Superintendent Laurine VanValkenburg apologized about the worksheet and said that students are allowed to bring their Bibles to read at school.How tragic that a principal has to be in town to ensure the TEACHERS under her supervision can’t be trusted to violate a student’s rights or encourage children to find alcohol appealing.
“If a child wants to bring a bible to school, they may,” she said, adding that she has been out of town and plans to look into both incidents when she returns.
