Lawrence Schools Proposal Nixed by NYCLU
Apparently, Donna Leiberman of the NYCLU told Steven I. Weiss today that in her opinion, none of the three different proposals would work from a Church/State point of view. From their conversation:
The question is whether the plan to tailor the public school education in order to fit a religious agenda impermissibly supports religion, and the answer in regard to both of these proposals is yes. Configuring the school day to fit religious instruction, and have students split their day between religious and secular education is fine, but it’s not a fine undertaking for public schools, it’s a fine undertaking for religious schools.Plan D, anyone?
