    Group threatens lawsuit over graduation ceremonoy being held in a church

    Milwaukee-Area Schools Face Legal Action Over Church Graduation Ceremonies - Education News Story - WISN Milwaukee

    That seems a bit over the top in my opinion... it's not like anyone is complaining and asking this group to help, they're sticking their noses into other people's business, unsolicited, on their behalf...

    I wonder who is violating who's rights here...

    Don't people have better stuff to do then to raise trouble. If it bothers a student, then change it. I guess the schools shouldn't have a break over winter either, cause that promotes religion.

    Just another example of "The Separation of Church and State" being completely flipped on it's head from the original intent of the statement. This isn't a big deal nore should it be.

    Re: Group threatens lawsuit over graduation ceremonoy being held in a church

    I thought this was about seperate side ceremonies at churches but after reading the article, there is no reason a school district should be having their graduation at a church... I imagine that could be a little uncomfortable for Jewish students and their families...

    Re: Group threatens lawsuit over graduation ceremonoy being held in a church

    Growing school districts all over the country rent classroom space in churches while new schools are being built/or existing schools are being remodeled and expanded. When my family first moved to Ames, I attended 3rd and 4th grades in churches as a public school student.

    Community cooperation just makes too much sense. Much better to sue and make everybody miserable.

    Maybe I need to be suing somebody. Am I missing out on something special?
