Memo to school boards: when the Family Insitute of Connecticut comes knocking, watch out.
Recall that Peter Wolfgang of the Family Institute of Connecticut urged the Enfield Board of Education in 2010 to go to court to fight to have the high school graduation in church.
He told them they would win and it wouldn’t cost them anything. The board decided to fight the matter in court.
This week the Enfield board voted to accept a settlement, agreeing that it would not hold graduations in a church The board will also have to pay at least part of the legal costs of the case with the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
