Several links below to resources on expressing your faith in school.
As children and college students head back to school, it’s always good to be reminded that religious liberty goes to school too. Please remember that your child has constitutionally-protected religious liberties at school.
Last school year, we dealt with numerous infringements on religious freedom – from students trying to offer Bibles to classmates at lunch in Mechanicsburg
…to children trying to share a Valentine with John 3:16 or a poem on some Halloween candy.
Please remember: Religious speech has the same constitutional protections as non-religious speech. For additional resources:
