West Virginia School District Says Students’ Rights Were Violated During Religious Gathering on Campus

posted on February 15, 2022

Alisha Ebrahimji of CNN reports, “Some students’ rights were violated during a revival assembly led by an evangelical preacher at a high school, a West Virginia school district investigating the gathering said in a statement.” The Fellowship of Christian Athletes held the assembly at Huntington High School on February 2, and a Jewish student told CNN that an evangelical preacher asked them to give their lives to Jesus. The school district superintendent’s statement read, “The district honors students’ rights to express their views. The district also respects students’ rights to religious expression. However, forcing religious expression on those with differing beliefs is not acceptable and is not in alignment with district, state, or federal policy and will not be tolerated by my administration or the Board of Education.”
