School is back in session across the fruited plain and students are getting settled in their new classes – adjusting to new teachers.
So it’s not all that unusual for moms and dads to receive letters from their child’s teacher – especially regarding inappropriate classroom behavior. But a letter written by a first grade teacher and sent to parents in McCordsville, Indiana is causing quite a stir.
The teacher urged parents to encourage their children to stop using religious words in the classroom.
“I have had a group of about five students using the words God, Jesus and Devil in conversation,” the teacher wrote.
Back when I was in grade school my classmates would typically invoke the Good Lord’s name — usually just before an exam.
