Student asked to re-do assignment after writing about her hero: Jesus

Another reason to not attend government schools.
Check it out:

A parent is speaking out after she said her daughter’s teacher rejected a rough draft of her paper. The subject, her hero, Jesus.

Heather Watts said her daughter attends second grade at Cerro Gordo Elementary School in Columbus County. Watts said the teacher asked her 8-year-old daughter Ryleigh, “can’t you write about something different?”

“I think she should have freedom to write about what she wants to write about,” the disgruntled mother said. “If she wants to write about Jesus, she should write about Jesus.”

Watts said this question is threatening her daughter’s First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
