FFRF gets daily Lord’s Prayer halted in La. class (December 2023)

FFRF has brought the Calcasieu Parish School District back in line with the Constitution. A concerned parent reported that their child’s kindergarten teacher at Bell City High School in Lake Charles, La., had been leading the class in reciting the Lord’s Prayer every school day before lunch. FFRF Legal Fellow Sammi Lawrence contacted Superintendent Shannon LaFargue, who then confirmed in an email that the teacher was instructed to cease leading the kindergarten students in prayer.
