BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Bossier Parish schools are now responding to a lawsuit that claims they promote religion on campus.
The Bossier Parish School Board responds with this statement:
The group Americans United filed a lawsuit on behalf of four Bossier Parish parents back on Feb. 7th.
Those parents claim their kids' religious freedom was trampled on repeatedly by administrators, teachers and coaches.
The lawsuit claims Bossier Parish schools do not welcome all faiths and compelled students to practice Christianity in classrooms and at school events both on and off campus.
