Teacher fired for ignoring imposed silence
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.-- A county school board Tuesday fired a high
school teacher who refused to honor a new state-mandated moment
of silence at the beginning of each school day. Brian Bown,
who taught social studies at South Gwinnett High School in
suburban Atlanta, said he felt the silence is an
unconstitutional attempt to return prayer to public schools.
Bown was suspended with pay Aug. 23 after he lectured during
the moment of silence. After his supension, Bown filed a
federal lawsuit challenging the law.
There goes the US Constitution!
