No school disapproval of religion

A California court has held that you can't knock Christianity in the classroom according to the 1st Amend. The ruling held that when James Corbett told his history class that creationism was "superstitious nonsense" he violated the establishment clause of the Constitution.

Kudos to the court for getting closer to consistent when in comes to irreligious belief in the classroom, but this ruling got schools no closer to a sane and logical solution.

Again, I would give much more deference to the parents in matters of education. What did they think?
