“Another child had asked the teacher if we could try to put what we believe on the paper, and she [the teacher] said you can if you want to get it wrong.”
(Katy, TX)—It sounds like it’s right out of the movie “God’s Not Dead”; a teacher telling students that they would fail if they believed that God is not fiction.(Screengrab via Fox News)
According to a Breitbart report, 7th grade “straight-A” student, Jordan Wooley was given an assignment along with her classmates, which maintained that God is a myth and not real.
The students of the reading class at West Memorial Junior High School were reportedly told if their answers disagreed with the assignment’s statements against God, their scores would suffer.
The threat didn’t deter Jordan, however, as she courageously wrote, “There is a God” on her test, even though it would cost her 40 percent of her grade.
The middle schooler later addressed the Katy Independent School District board meeting about the situation, telling them that “another child had asked the teacher if we could try to put what we believe on the paper, and [the teacher] said ‘You can if you want to get it wrong.'” (Screengrab via Breitbart.com)
According to Breitbart: Superintendent Alton Frailey responded to Jordan saying, “I’m truly sorry that you feel that your faith was questioned.
“What’s going on is that the principal was made aware of this today and is going to have a chance to work on that as per district policies and procedures,” he added. “We definitely will look into that. Thank you very much. It was very brave of you. Thank you, honey. Good job.”
