Chicago Tribune, 9/23: 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!
