5-year old censored by NY school for having image of 'Christ' on his posterTopics: Judicial Activism
Five year-old Antonio Peck had no idea when he turned in his homework assignment, a poster about protecting the environment, that it would land him in federal court.
Peck, then a kindergarten student at Baldwinsville, NY's Catherine McNamara Elementary School, originally turned in his poster-assignment to his teacher in 1999. It featured, among other things, a cut out picture of Jesus--something he reportedly thought applicable to the environment, and the assignment."The school humiliated Antonio when the teacher "folded his poster in half" so that the cutout "drawing of Jesus" could not be seen."
