Well, this is the first I've seen/heard of it, so this is off-the-cuff, but...

My initial reaction is, what's the big deal? They're not forcing students to go, they're not forcing those who choose NOT to go to do something else (they've got free time), it's non-denominational...

Where's the beef?

The Midwest is considered the "Bible belt", and we tend not to jump on the ACLU bandwagon over every little thing, like our big-city counterparts. In fact, in my kid's school, we still have honest-to-God Christmas programs, and the music programs always throw in some religious songs, and (gasp!) we still pray at graduations, etc. Nobody has a beef with it. We use common sense. If you want to bow your head, fine. If you don't, fine.

Like everything else these days, I tend to think that some people just want to see their names in the papers and raise a big stink.

I'm willing to be objective and discuss further - like I said, this is just my initial reaction, and I really haven't looked into it deeply or put a lot of thought into it.
I think thats where the beef is. I believe this woman doesn't want her child losing instructional time while they all sit around waiting for the "holly rollers" to get back. Perhaps they can schedule the bible study class directly after school then this poor little 8 yr old won't be tramatized any more. Well you get my drift.

This kid is going to grow up a if mommy keeps stepping into things all the time. Let the kid handle his own emotions, he'll find a way to over come his emotional scaring.
