Elementary School Removes Story About Christmas Ass at AU’s Urging - Amana, IA

A local elementary school was screening a movie called “Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey” in a music class. The film features scenes that depict the birth of Jesus Christ. AU wrote to the school and explained that public schools may not show religious films to their students. The school spoke with the teacher responsible and agreed to monitor its classes for religious content. As of December 2012, the school has kept its promise and no religious activities have been incorporated into classroom instruction.
