Religious Discrimination in Schools In USA


Religious discrimination in American public schools amidst growing immorality, and academic decline

Blatant religious discrimination is rising in public schools. Religious conservatives ultimately see it as a Satanic assault in public schools. Interestingly, as school politics increasingly “liberal and progressive,” academic literacy declines.

Bremerton High School

In 2015, the school authority forbade coach Joseph Kennedy of Bremerton High School in Washington State to stop praying at the midfield. It’s been customary for the coach to do this after every game as his way of thanking God. [Seattle Time]

Kennedy continued his practice and was eventually terminated. In 2023, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in favor of Kennedy. The conservative justices were in the majority, and the liberals were in dissent.

Cameron High School

In 2019, Cameron High School coaches Jeff Wallace and David Stucky from Missouri were accused of proselytizing students by leading a voluntary Christian prayer. The coaches denied pressuring students to participate, and a school investigation found no coercion.

Atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter to the Cameron School District in Missouri, claiming the “prayer was unconstitutional.”

Manchester Elementary

In the same year, Manchester Elementary prohibited using “Christian ornaments” as holiday decorations because it is equivalent to promoting “Christianity.” The school principal Jennifer Sinclair forbade them inside the school.

In 2020, officials at Simpson Elementary School, Mississippi, forced a student to remove the mask because it had “Jesus” on it.

Glenbard North High School

Religious discrimination in public high schools is rising, but one school in Illinois seemed to be the cornucopia of what is wrong in American schools.

Amidst disrespect, immorality, and academic decline, students had their share of racism, drugs related problems, and religious discrimination—common in many American public schools.

A decade ago, one pastor called Glenbard North a “ghetto school” and pulled his son out. A retired Christian teacher who now lives in Covenant Living claimed the location was once an Indian cemetery pointing out that the problem was spiritual.

In 2021, its principal, John Mensik, banned an Asian and immigrant substitute teacher from working at the building following a dispute with a security guard who was white.

The substitute teacher contended that he and his two daughters, who were enrolled at the school then, were being subjected to discrimination by the security staff that stemmed from a parking issue.

The sub also claimed that before the incident, he had experienced discriminatory treatment from the school’s Dean of Student Services, Debra Cartwright, who reprimanded him for spending time with his daughter during lunch and deemed it unprofessional.

The immigrant parent then asked if he could at least have a minute to spend time with his daughter for a quick prayer. Cartwright and another “progressive” dean denied the request unless he did it outside the premises after school hours.

According to one Asian student, Mensik doesn’t smile and frequently disregarded her greetings but displayed kindness towards her friends who were white.

In 2022, a married man, the head of Glenbard North Security, was fired for alleged misconduct relating to several female students. We reached out to the school but received no reply about the incident.

In the same year, a student was cuffed by police in the parking for alleged drug-related charges, something that has happened in the past.

In 2023, Great School reports that only 61% of students at Glenbard North have expressed satisfaction and happiness with their school, the lowest within its neighboring high school.
