Board remembers First Amendment

From CNN:

Public elementary schools [in Staunton, Virginia] will continue to allow Bible classes during class time while the local school board conducts a one-year review to determine if criticism of the practice by some parents is valid.

Several hundred people attended the school board meeting Monday, with many standing and applauding the 5-1 decision to begin the review while continuing religious classes, a tradition in Staunton and some other rural Virginia school districts for more than 60 years.

Remember, these class are privately funded, generally held off campus, and are attended only by kids whose parents have given permission. To refuse to allow them would be a violation of the First Amendment.
