Religion in the classroom sparks controversy

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- JCPS officials are taking action after a meeting over religion sparked concern in the classroom.

Superintendent Donna Hargens sent out a reminder to staff about rules regarding religion in the curriculum.

All this comes as questions were raised after the meeting last week.

The Louisville Area Christian Educator Support group was held last week in a public school auditorium to provide information about religious rights and instructional strategies.

Hargens has reminded principals that public school employees are required to remain neutral concerning religion while teaching in the classroom.
