What amazes me about these

What amazes me about these stories are that they are all "lower education schools". I'm sure their are some colleges which have similar problems but because colleges deal with so many people from so many different walks of life, they are forced to not get sued. Money is too important to them and low attendance means lower funds.

However, in elementary, middle and high schools, school officials can force their opinions on the students because they aren't relying on parents to pay their tuition. They are getting set salaries from the counties and if they want to force kids to be christians or partake in christian ceremonies then they believe they can get away with it.

You'd think that after the Monkey trial and Dover trial society would get the fucking message that schools are not holy buildings, but even with what the founders did, attempts to tear down Jefferson's wall, have been going on the minute the ink was dry on the Constitution. The goal of evolution is not to be rational all the time, the goal is to produce offspring.
