An elementary school in Carlsbad is under scrutiny from the surrounding community this month because of accusations that the school violated the First Amendment rights of a special needs student who simply wanted to read the Bible during his reading time in class.
When you think of the legal system, or a court of law, or a lawsuit, or really anything that deals with the terms "legal," your first thought probably isn't about schools and students. The two concepts simply don't mix, at least in the minds of many people. This could be due to the fact that we think of school and students as innocent and happy. That's the way they are supposed to be.
