Every September, students across the country gather before classes for the “See You at the Pole” event—to pray for schools, and the nation.
One 7th-grade student posted fliers with Bible verses in advance of the event. . .and get this. . .
A school counselor confronted the student at a school dance in front of her friends—informing her the fliers were illegal—because of the Bible verses.
The fliers were taken down and destroyed, based on a district-wide policy banning distribution of religious materials on school grounds, during or after the school day.
Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a lawsuit stating that students don’t shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate! For now the school is not backing down.
The fact is: Students can and should exercise their constitutionally protected freedoms.
