Good news: Gideons get left behind (March 3, 2015)

Jefferson County School District in Madras, Ore., will no longer allow the Good News Club to park a trailer at Warm Springs K-8 Academy. Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel wrote to the district Feb. 16 after learning that the school board allowed the club to promote religion during school hours on school property. The Child Evangelism Fellowship states that club is to “evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ.”

An attorney for the district answered March 3, forwarding a letter the district sent to the club to inform it that allowing the trailer on school property was unconstitutional.
