The Freedom from Religion Foundation has joined parents of school children in Dayton, Tennessee, in a lawsuit against Rhea County, the board of education, the school superintendent, and the county executive over classroom Bible instruction at William Jennings Bryan College. According to plaintiffs, the suit was filed after all efforts toward remedying the situation had been exhausted. Despite their objections to the Bible classes, the distribution of Bibles by the Gideon Society in the classrooms, and Bible readings over the intercom and displayed on walls and doors, the Board of Education and the Rhea County Commission passed a resolution in support of the school’s action.
