The parents of a 12-year-old boy who enjoys reading the Bible in his free time says his school violated their son’s “fundamental rights” when they allegedly told him to put the book away, FOX4KC reports.
Loyal Grandstaff told his parents he loves reading his bible, and decided to take it out during a free read shortly before Christmas break. But as soon as he brought out the book, his teacher told him it wasn’t allowed, Grandstaff’s parents told FOX4KC.
“I was just reading, just reading because I had free time,” Grandstaff said. “A time to do what I wanted to, so I just broke it out and read.”
He said he wasn’t reading the book out loud, or sharing it with his classmates.
