Court Approves Firing Teacher over Religious Items

Ad Feedback

Ohio's Supreme Court okayed a decision by the Mount Vernon City School District to fire a teacher who kept religious materials in his classroom.

Eighth grade science teacher John Freshwater had a Bible, religious books, and a poster of a president praying in his classroom.

The court ruled that the school district was in the wrong when administrators ordered him to remove his personal Bible. But they found Freshwater insubordinate for keeping the other items.

Three out of the seven judges disagreed with the decision.
