The students and administrators at Bastrop High School have spoken: they clearly don’t care about the Constitution, following the law or respecting the religious freedom rights of those with different belief systems.
Working for Americans United, I sometimes hear about public school officials who have a very poor understanding of the Constitution.
But no matter how many times I hear these stories, it still always shocks me that there are educators out there who refuse to respect the rights of all students, not just the majority.
That’s what’s happening in Bastrop, La., right now. A graduating senior who is an atheist has asked his school to discontinue prayers at commencement.
