Religious promotion ended at Texas school (January 24, 2017)

A parent with a child in Victoria School District in Texas contacted FFRF to report instances of religious promotion at Ella Schorlemmer Elementary School. A Christian prayer was part of the school’s Veterans Day celebration and a teacher at the elementary school incorporated religious worksheets into a lesson plan.

FFRF Staff Attorney Sam Grover wrote to Superintendent Robert Jaklich on Dec. 22, 2016, asking that the school district refrain from including religious rituals during public school assemblies and that teachers not incorporate religious instruction or devotional teachings into their lesson plans.

Jaklich responded on Jan. 24 that steps had been taken to ensure that the violations would not recur.
