    That one should make it up to SCOTUS and get overturned. How ridiculous. The public school system is subject to the popluace it serves, not master over it.

    It's the 9th circuit. I think they just flip a coin on decisions. This really bugged me until I saw who made the ruling.

    "Schools cannot be expected to accommodate the personal, moral or religious concerns of every parent," Judge Stephen Reinhardt wrote for the panel. "Such an obligation would not only contravene the educational mission of the public schools, but also would be impossible to satisfy."


    so does this mean i can say merry christmas now and wear scary costumes on halloween and celebrate columbus day.... i mean after all "Schools cannot be expected to accommodate the personal, moral or religious concerns of every parent,"
