Houston teacher accused of telling student not to bring Bible to school

CYPRESS, Texas – A Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District teacher is being accused of telling an elementary school student she can’t read the Bible in school and is not even allowed to bring the Bible to school.

The allegations surfaced on Tuesday afternoon when the Liberty Institute released a statement and said it sent a letter to the Hamilton Elementary School principal and Cy-Fair ISD superintendent.

“We expect Cypress-Fairbanks ISD officials to resolve this unfortunate incident quickly and amicably by informing us that they have addressed this matter with District employees, and by assuring us that this will not happen again,” the letter read.

Meanwhile, parents Local 2 spoke with are outraged at the allegations.

“If it were a time when the child could have silent time and read what she wants to read during that time period, she should be able to read whatever she wants to read,” said parent Germaine Tanner whose child attends the school.
