ACLU Strikes Next in Dispute with Lee County Schools
In an ongoing dispute with Lee County, Virginia Schools, the ACLU issues a statement saying it is challenging "mandated participation" in Christian activities that make children of minority faiths feel unwelcome. In response to ACLU objections, Lee County schools stopped the singing of the hymn, "'Til We Meet Again At Jesus’ Feet” at graduation, and have taken down a plaque displaying the Ten Commandments at Thomas Walker High School. But school officials deny that the teachers testify to their faith at the student religious club meetings and that such meetings are allowed to carry over into regular class time. (LM)
