West Virginia teacher won’t use religious coloring booklet (March 3, 2022)

FFRF was alerted by a Putnam County Schools parent that a first-grade teacher at the West Virginia school assigned students a “Jesus is Born!” informational booklet coloring assignment. The booklet recounted religious stories from the bible. FFRF Staff Attorney Chris Line wrote to Superintendent John G. Hudson advising the district to take immediate action to stop teachers from giving religious assignments to students.

Hudson responded and said that Putnam County Schools is aware of its obligations and that the incident was an isolated one and will not recur.
