Reading the Bible on a School Bus

This item, from Virginia, was in the news several years ago. Audrey Pearson, a 10-year old mentally and physically handicapped girl, rode a public school bus to attend a special school. To cope with the boredom of the one-hour ride, her mother gave her a Bible to read on the bus. The principal notified the mother that children are not allowed to bring Bibles to school. Reason: separation of church and state.
