A Connecticut school district is being sued for allowing two high school graduation ceremonies to be held at a church, the Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (May 14, 2010).
Enfield Public Schools voted to hold June commencement at a local church because of its size and low cost.
Two students said the decision "coerces students and parents to receive the overwhelming religious message" of church.
The American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for Separation of Church and State filed the lawsuit May 5, on behalf of the unidentified students and their parents.
The American Center for Law and Justice is representing the school district in court.
