Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: January of 2014
Categories: Religious Right People, Bobby Jindal & Louisiana
A public school in Louisiana has been sued by a Buddhist family that claims their child was routinely and systemically harassed by the child's teacher, officials, and even the school superintendent. The child claims that he was made fun of by his teacher, had religious based questions marked incorrectly on his tests, and he had to take part in official prayers directed by the principal and teachers. The parents also claim the superintendent told them that they lived in the bible belt and that they would just have to accept the status quo.
