Date Resolved

A parent complained that a teaching assistant at her daughter’s middle-school had given her daughter a note instructing her to read certain Bible verses which are often cited to communicate religious disapproval of same-sex relationships. AU objected, explaining to the school that this action violated the separation of church and state and the school district’s policies against sexual harassment. The school quickly initiated an investigation, and the complainant has told us that there have been no further problems.
