Separation of Church and State

Holding Out for a Hero

|

Heather Watts says her daughter was asked to write a paper on a hero for a class at North Carolina's Cerro Gordo Elementary School. But when the girl turned in a paper on Jesus, her teacher asked her to write about someone else, Watts says. In a statement, school officials said students in the class face no restrictions on who they could write about. But Watts says her daughter is still being asked to write about something different.
