PRECIOUS 8-YEAR-OLD AUTISTIC BOY BRINGS HIS BIBLE TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY – THAT IS, UNTIL THE SCHOOL TOLD HIM THE BOOK IS ‘ONLY FOR CHURCH’
However, when a local news station contacted the superintendent of Crestwood Schools, she quickly overruled the decision handed down by Highview Elementary.
Dr. Laurine Van Valkenburg told WJBK-TV that she understands why Cross is frustrated. She also added, "If a child wants to bring a Bible to school, they may.” Van Valkenburg, who says she has been out of town, vowed to look into the incident when she returns. But it’s not just the Bible banning that’s got the mother frustrated with Highview Elementary.
Cross says she’s not pleased with the way her son has been treated in the past and claims a worksheet given to her 6-year-old daughter’s referenced alcohol.
The worksheet isn’t overly controversial, but the mother objects to her 6-year-old daughter being exposed to information about alcohol at such an early age.
