…teacher of promoting religion in a public school setting

MANTECA, CALIF. – An Manteca-area student is accusing his teacher of promoting religion in a public school setting. New Vision High School teacher John Alameda allegedly rewarded students with Bible cookies at the continuation school. Now, a national organization is stepping in and is demanding the Manteca Unified School District stop him.
“The teacher should stop this unlawful proselytization (sic) and pushing of religion on, near vulnerable students.” Alex Luchenitser, the Associate Legal Director for Americans United for Separation of Church and State told FOX40 Thursday in a phone interview.
A New Vision High school student filed a complaint with Americans United against MUSD teacher John Alameda, “All this conduct of the teacher is a clear violation of the U.S. constitution,” Luchenitser said.
