Group Wants Cross Removed From School
02/11/2014

A group wants a western Kansas school to remove a cross from the top of its building.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State says the cross on Spearville Elementary School violates the First Amendment. The group wrote Superintendent Daryl Stegman and Principal Marvin Hartzler in November in response to a complaint from a resident.

The USD 381 Board of Education reached an informal consensus Monday that it wouldn't take any action on the cross until a lawsuit is filed.

The group requested a reply from the school district within 30 days and sent another letter Jan. 9. The school district has chosen not to respond to the group.

Spearville, a town of about 775 residents, is northeast of Dodge City.

I do hope the community takes a stand against the one resident that has complained. Obviously, the school building is not new. Previous residents must not have had a problem with a cross being added to the building when it was built. It is time for the other residents to start using their rights by protesting in front of the persons home and speaking out for what they believe in. Since the government has already crossed the line of separation of church and state within the schools, the church has a right to be represented within the schools.
