Palm Beach County School District in Florida has stopped making students watch a motivational speech by Christian evangelist Nick Vujicic. Boca Raton Middle School had required all students to watch one of Vujicic's speeches. He also spoke at several other schools in the district.
Vujicic's organization, Life Without Limbs, encourages visitors to its website to "become a Christian" and "understand and accept that you are a sinner." The district reportedly also showed videos of his presentations to preschool and elementary students and had plans for future events.
Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel complained in a March 9 letter. An administrator responded March 16 that the district would "immediately cease sharing this video with our students."
