A mom in Powell County, Kentucky, claims that her two children are being bullied by students and teachers at Stanton Elementary for not being Christians.
Heather Estes told WLEX that students and teachers are bullying her ten and eight-year-old children for not attending the “upper room,’ a non-denominational, student-led Christian organization that meets every morning before school starts:
My children are asked every day, ‘do you believe in God? Why don’t you go?. He’s been told by teachers things like the Atheists will be eaten by bears.
Powell County superintendent Michael Tate refused to appear on camera, but said the school system is looking into Estes’ complaints.
