Latin cross removed from Texas classroom (February 13, 2017)

FFRF reminded the Lewisville Independent School District in Texas that employees must not endorse their personal spiritual beliefs to students through religious displays.

A community member informed FFRF that a cross was visibly hanging in a classroom of Arbor Creek Middle School promoting the teacher’s Christian views to students. On Feb. 8, FFRF Staff Attorney Sam Grover wrote to the school district’s superintendent, Kevin Rogers, asking that the cross be removed.

Lewisville ISD’s legal director called to inform FFRF on Feb. 13 that the cross had been removed from the classroom.
