Father of 2nd grader says his son was suspended for making a picture of Jesus on a cross; school say claim is inaccurate
FromThe Boston Globe: Officials in Taunton, Mass., are sharply disputing an allegation that a local elementary school suspended a second-grader and required the boy to undergo a psychological evaluation for drawing a picture of Jesus on a cross. The story, initially reported by the local newspaper, raised questions of religious bias days before Christmas. School officials say that the account in the Taunton Daily Gazette was rife with errors and that the description from the boy's father of what happened is untrue.
