Administrators with a Katy, Texas, school say a girl’s claim of an anti-God class assignment isn’t exactly true – that the teacher did not give a failing grade to those who insisted on the existence of a higher being. Jordan Wooley, 12, and her mother Chantel spoke to Katy ISD School Board members to complain of a teacher assignment that included a question about God being a myth, as WND previously reported. Specifically, the assignment was a critical-thinking worksheet that asked students to characterize the statement, “There is a God,” as fact, opinion or common assertion.
The girl said checking the space by “fact” would have brought an incorrect answer, while her mother said the assignment was 40 percent of the grade for the class. Katy ISD Superintendent Alton Frailey, however, said officials interviewed eight of the 22 other students in the class and none backed Wooley’s claim. “In the investigation, those assertions were not corroborated by the other students,” she said, ABC 13 reported. “Was the activity graded? It was not graded. Was it 40 percent of their grade? Were the students told they had to deny God? No one corroborated that at all.” FULL REPORT
