FFRF ensures students’ rights in Alabama (March 2, 2016)

FFRF has ensured that members of the Interfaith Club at Bob Jones High School will be permitted to hold meetings on any topic of their choosing, after Madison City Schools Assistant Superintendent Robby Parker prohibited discussion of Satanism, the planned topic at one of the club’s meetings.

FFRF Staff Attorney Sam Grover contacted the district’s attorney on Feb. 17, noting that it’s unlawful for a school to deny students the right to meet based on the “religious, political philosophical or other content of the speech at such meetings.”

The district’s attorney responded March 2, saying that administrators and other employees “will take all necessary steps to ensure that schools in the city of Madison comply with the statute.”
