His teacher, Julie Millin, asked him to remove the reference to the Bible, saying students were making remarks about it. He refused, and she gave him a zero on the project.
Millin showed the student a policy for the class that prohibited any violence, blood, sexual connotations or religious beliefs in artwork. The lawsuit claims Millin told the boy he had signed away his constitutional rights when he signed the policy at the beginning of the semester.
OK, that's not going to fly.
The boy tore the policy up in front of Millin, who kicked him out of class. Later that day, assistant principal Cale Jackson told the boy his religious expression infringed on other students' rights.
And those rights would include the right not to have to know that someone else is religious? It figures this took place in Madison, WI.
This school is so out of line, I genuinely and honestly hope that either
a) the school district goes broke in their losing court battle to defend their stupid policy, or
b) people get fired over a policy so clearly unconstitutional.
