The Fort Wayne Indiana School Board voted unanimously Monday to discontinue religious instruction classes in the face of a federal lawsuit brought by the ACLU of Indiana on behalf of the parents of a third grader. The classes had been held in trailers on school grounds in conjunction with the Associated Churches of Fort Wayne (a Christian coalition). Rather than the religious instruction classes character education classes are planned be taught. However, they are nonetheless to be provided in conjunction with the Associated Churches apparently still in violation of separation of church and state, and suggesting that they will still present only Christian philosophy. The religious instruction classes had been conducted since 1944.
