From the progressive, forward-thinking Bordentown Regional School District in NJ:
Yet another school district’s decision to crack down on religious Christmas music is already beginning to capture national attention. Just two weeks after Wausau School District in Wausau, Wis., battled over the very same issue and inevitably stepped away from a proposed ban, a New Jersey district has decided that faith-based tunes have no place in public elementary schools.
On Oct. 18, Bordentown Regional Schools Superintendent Constance J. Bauer released a brief statement about religious songs on the district’s website. Bauer noted that some of this traditional music was recently questioned and that, after a review, officials have decided to remove religious Christmas songs from winter concerts.
