Teacher Forced To Remove Reagan Quotes From Classroom

Teacher Forced To Remove Reagan Quotes From Classroom

FOX News

A New York public school teacher who advised a school Bible Study club has filed a civil rights lawsuit against her school district after she was forced to remove all religious content from her classroom — including a quote from former President Ronald Reagan.

Joelle Silver, a veteran teacher in the Cheektowaga Central School District in western New York, said she received a “counseling letter” signed by her superintendent that ordered her to remove all religious-themed items from her classroom or else she could be fired.

The eight-page letter informed the teacher that “your rights to free speech and expression are not as broad as if your were simply a private citizen.”

Among the items that had to be removed were a poster with an inspirational Bible verse superimposed over an American flag and inspirational messages she had written on sticky notes kept on her desk, according to court documents obtained by Fox News.

The school district also ordered her to remove a quote from former President Ronald Reagan which read in part — “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under.”

Wild Thing's comment.................

America is truly dying, each day. Some days in a big way and other days in small ways, but it all keeps happening.....non-stop liberal, socialist agenda taking over.

I thank God I was blessed to grow up in the best America. The one we have now and the way it is going it is disappearing.

And they wonder why things like Sandy Hook take place.

..Reagan would be turning over in his grave if he knew what has become of the U.S.A. There was craziness during the Clinton years and thereafter but during the past four years, the madness has grown exponentially...
