California Briefing / POWAY

Board will fight teacher over banners

September 17, 2008|Tony Perry

A San Diego County school board has decided to continue its legal fight against a high school math teacher who wants to restore banners saying "God Bless America" and "One Nation Under God" to his classroom, the board's attorney, Jack M. Sleeth Jr., said Tuesday.

The board of the Poway Unified School District, in closed session Monday night, decided to continue opposing the lawsuit filed by Bradley Johnson. Johnson filed suit after he was ordered by a school principal to take down the banners.

A federal judge two weeks ago rejected the school district's request to dismiss the lawsuit. Lawyers for Johnson had hoped the district would seek to settle the lawsuit without trial.
