Public school reduces number of religious holiday songs and provides students chance to opt out if they have religious objections - Wilton, CT

AU received a complaint regarding a public high school’s holiday concert, which featured an overwhelming amount of religious music and did not allow students to opt out of singing the religious songs. Our letter explained that school-choir performances must be predominantly secular and students must be provided with an opportunity to opt out of singing religious songs without penalty to their grade. The school agreed to reduce the amount of religious music in future performances and to provide an opt-out.
