I'm sure there is different ways to look at progressive, but I would say our education system is very politically slanted...

If it's a public school, they can't do that.
Of course, it has yet to be proven that it all fell out exactly as she stated for the reasons she stated. Maybe if Delta is a tiny little school in the back of beyond ... but in most school districts, I have a hard time thinking they would do all this just because she's an atheist any more than they would if she outed herself as some brand of evangelical or a Muslim.
Now in a private religious school I could see it causing problems, generally the students in high school are expected to be serious in their faith to some degree in some schools, and if she was in one of those, to have outed herself as a closeted atheist would be a violation of the school's policies and a lie. Generally a school like that would have a very dim view of that sort of dishonesty, too.

Was it a religious school...? It hasn't been cool to be religious in a long time. Im pretty sure religious kids have a tougher time these days.. Some backwater twilight zone pocket in the deep south where segregation is still practiced?
