A Clear Violation of First Amendment

Today's Washington Post has published a story about an incident in a public school in which a student was prohibited from reading the Bible at school on her own time.

This is a clear violation of the free exercise clause of the First Amendment.

Teachers and public school administrators, as servants of civil government, may not promote religion on school time. Neither may they prohibit students from freely exercising their religion in a non-disruptive manner on their own time.
