Following Warning, a “Prayer Requests” Board in a Mississippi Classroom Has Been Removed

A couple of weeks ago, the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center sent a letter to a Mississippi school district where a teacher had put up a Prayer Request Board in her classroom:

The letter was all it took to fix the problem:

In an email from the school district’s attorney, the district stated that the writing on the “prayer requests” board was painted over so that it was no longer endorsing prayer. The district also made assurances that all teachers would receive an official message from the superintendent informing them that they must not promote prayer or religion in their classrooms.

Smart move by District officials who handled the situation exactly as they should have. They found out about the problem and resolved it with little fanfare. Sure, you wish the AHA didn’t have to send a letter in the first place, but I’ll take a speedy resolution any day.
