A teacher in a public school should neither raise up nor degrade religion in the classroom.

Well, sharing a pov is one thing, stepping over clearly drawn lines of respect, and I dresay professionality, is quite another. Those bounds are there for the very reason of avoiding stuff like this from happening in the first place, no?

If it had been a religious teacher spouting religious dogma, would religious fundamentalists think that was wrong?
I would not think so, but even fundamentalists are human...anyone who can make mistakes and be wrong. So there is a... chance to the contrary.
Would it really matter in a public school? There are guidelines to be adhered to. Teachers are expected to follow them. They don't and this is what happens.
If it intrigues you...why not find out more?
