A 4th grader gave invitations to her fellow students—and by the way—not during class time. The invitations were for an Easter egg hunt, games, snacks and hearing the biblical story of Easter.
Birthday party invitations are passed out all the time, but in this case, the principal denied permission for the invitations—citing a policy that students are not allowed to pass out fliers related to religious events or activities.
The policy was amended when Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit on behalf of the student—and the Court struck down the school’s unconstitutional policies.
As the Alliance Defending Freedom legal counsel said, “The First Amendment protects freedom of speech for all students, regardless of religious or political beliefs.”
. . .and thankfully. . .even for forth graders!
