The Freedom From Religion Foundation said it appears a Moulton Elementary teacher was illegally promoting Christianity to first graders in April when discussing Easter, but the Lawrence County Schools superintendent says the teacher was "well within her job description."

When I was in college, we had to take a religions course. This course incompassed all religions. I would rather see a course like this in school rather than having Christianity pushed down our throats everywhere we look. I agree with this article about having coloring books about Kwanzaa to be fair and not lean towards or learn about one religion specifically. It's awkward that religion is taught at such a young age. In my opinion, religion shouldn't be mentioned in schools until at least middle school where their developed minds can understand the concept of religion.
