Jesus Taken Down In School
I don’t know about you but I think we could use more Jesus in schools. That’s not the thinking in this Jackson City, Ohio school. According to the Associated Press:
A Jesus portrait has hung in the school since 1947. And now the superintendent of Jackson City Schools said the decision was made after the district’s insurance company declined to cover litigation expenses. He said the faculty adviser and two student members of the Hi-Y Club, a Christian-based service club that the school says owns the portrait, took it down at his direction. “At the end of the day, we just couldn’t roll the dice with taxpayer money,” Superintendent Phil Howard told The Associated Press. “When you get into these kinds of legal battles, you’re not talking about money you can raise with bake sales and car washes. It’s not fair to take those resources from our kids’ education.”
Do you think this is right? Do pictures of Jesus still hang in schools around Sioux Falls?
