Tuscaloosa, AL

AU received a complaint that a substitute teacher at Tuscaloosa City Schools posted a Bible verse and made proselytizing comments while filling in for an English teacher at a city high school. We wrote a letter to the Schools informing them that it is unconstitutional for school employees to present religious messages to students in class. The school principal subsequently spoke to the teacher about her actions and monitored her conduct. Since then, the teacher has not engaged in similar conduct. We will continue to monitor the teacher’s activities.
