Americans United vs Heritage Charter Schools

Americans United  for Separation of Church and State (AU) intends to file suit against an Arizona public charter school that has been providing religious instruction to students in a mandatory American Government course. The course material claims that "America and its Constitution were established by the hand of God," and that the U.S. will prosper only when its leaders obey and implement God's law as described in the Bible.

The Governor rejected Secular Coalition for Arizona’s request for a proclamation, but the group will nonetheless be collaborating with local nontheistic communities to organize events as part of a larger countrywide movement advocating a National Day of Reason.
