Indiana Teacher Demands Parents Tell Kids to Stop Talking About God in Class

An elementary school teacher in Indiana caught flak from parents and school administrators alike for sending a letter home warning parents to tell their children to stop talking about God, Jesus, and the devil in her classroom.
A first-grade teacher at McCordsville Elementary School sent a letter home to parents informing them that “about 5 students” had been heard talking about religion and using the words “God,” “Jesus,” and “devil,” Fox 59 reported.
“With McCordsville Elementary being a public school, we have many different religions and beliefs, and I do not want to upset a child/parent because of these words being used,” the teacher’s letter said. “If you go to church or discuss these things at home, please have a talk with your child about there being an appropriate time and place of talking about it.”
Parents were alarmed enough to contact the teacher’s superiors forcing Superintendent Shane Robbins to issue a letter calling the teacher’s missive “unfortunate” and denouncing the teacher’s actions. Robbins assured parents that their children’s First Amendment rights would not be violated in school.
