Howdy Folks,
       This month's eNewsLetter concerns the lack of school board policies encompassing "The Freedom Of Religious Expression In Public Schools".  School Boards should have a comprehensive policy so that our K-12 children do not get their religious expression shot down by a school employee.  If they have a policy it will help them to know what is legal.
       You don't have to have a child in your local school to sign one of these petitions because you are a tax payer.  Typically 50% of your property taxes go to your school board!  You definitely can petition them to develop a comprehensive Freedom of Expression Policy.
       This first link is for the Pinellas County Petition.  The organizer prefers their model over the other one.  Please print, copy, get signatures and mail in by May 1, 2007.  http://Hisways.org/howto/Pinellas-RELIGIOUS-FREEDOM-PETITION-nd.html
       This second link(s) is a general
petition that can be used anywhere.  It is slightly editedand shows The Liberty Counsel's Legal Resource and Model School Board Policy:  http://lc.org/Resources/Memo_Christmas_Public.pdf,   This Petition is located at :  http://Hisways.org/howto/Petition-Freedom-Of-Religious-Expression.htm ,.  The same in PDF format is at:  http://Hisways.org/howto/Petition-Freedom-Of-Religious-Expression.pdf ,

Sincerely,
RE Klenk,    A concerned grandparent of future(?) govt. school kids.
ps.  This portion of the Pinellas Petition is shown for reference only.  Printing from the links above would produce better results.


     PETITION FOR FREEDOM OF RELIGIOUS EXPRESSION IN PINELLAS COUNTY SCHOOLS DURING RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS

We, the undersigned, believe there should be freedom for the students to express their religious beliefs and customs in our public schools and no prohibitions of the students’ "free exercise thereof", as stated in the First Amendment of our Federal Constitution which protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from government interference.

Religious songs and symbols should be allowed for inclusion as part of a wider celebration of Christmas, which is recognized as a national holiday in America. We have not seen this freedom of religion in the use of Christmas carols and students’ art. Therefore, we petition the Pinellas County School Board to correct this discriminatory practice through the adoption of an official policy.

3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
5 and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.
6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.
7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles,
8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.
