The Fayette R-III School District will be making several changes to its school policy after a lawsuit from a national organization. The American Humanist Association settled a lawsuit with the school district regarding alleged violations of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
The American Humanist Association filed a federal lawsuit against Missouri's Fayette School District on Wednesday (Nov. 20), saying Fayette High School is unconstitutionally promoting Christianity through teacher-led prayer.
The lawsuit focuses on the activities happening in the classroom of Gwen Pope, a math teacher at the school. Pope was the faculty advisor for the Christian student group at the school.
