Afterward, a school spokesperson met with Shead and versed her on what their district policy is with regards to bringing religion in to school curriculum: According to the school official, while teachers are not allowed to proselytize within the confines of an educational institution within the district, there are currently no policies that forbade students from introducing God in class assignments that they are given.

A statement was generated by the district, regarding the incident:

Shelby County Schools respects the moral and religious beliefs of all students and families. While teachers and staff are not permitted to promote religion in the classroom, no laws or district policies allow teachers to limit students’ expression of religious beliefs in their personal classwork. This was a regrettable misunderstanding, and we as educators must learn from it. The principal and teacher have had a positive and productive conversation with the family, and we are pleased this matter is being addressed at the school level. The district will not be discussing this matter further in the media.

Shead is waiting to see whether any disciplinary action will be taken in regards to her daughter’s teacher.

Sound off!

    • The public school where I volunteer does not allow the discussion of religion, but accepts religious projects. Consequently, I have no idea if the grade is based on the homework [that is handed in].

  1. It is so sad that the teacher failed to recognize that the child sees God as her true beloved; that is what the Bible teaches us [to do]. Furthermore, the Bible teaches us to teach our children about Him; thankfully, this mother taught her child as she was instructed.
