When I first read the headline, I thought we were in for a "right to religion in school" hot-air fest. Turns out it's about a kid that did some
critical thinking and made some assessments. Which is the point-being able to think for oneself, discuss topics like religion, even in school. This
kid is head-and-shoulders above the typical 5th grader (a non-scientific personal observation). He didn't bash religion, just cited a few references
to support his observations.
From the article:
Zachary Golob-Drake is the kind of kid any school would be proud to have representing it. And last week, the Tampa, Fla., fifth-grader won a first
place blue ribbon in a class contest for his speech about how to make the world “a better place.” He was then set to deliver that speech to his
entire fourth and fifth grade, and, if he did well, go on to represent his school at the regional 4-H Tropicana Public Speech contest. Instead, the
boy says the school tried to strip him of his prize and block him from sharing his speech with the school.
