Non-Christian Teachers Preferred in Ferndale Schools Contract

 
Non-Christian Teachers Preferred in Ferndale Schools Contract
Posted March 19th, 2014 @ 7:24am by WOOD Radio News Team

Reportedly, at least one teacher contract in effect in Michigan today demands that management give "special consideration" to applicants who are "non-Christian".  

It is the conservative think-tank the Mackinac Center for Public Policy which has been going through contracts statewide and reportedly found  six-of-every-ten teacher contracts has at least one illegal provision. 

In Ferndale Public Schools, after a paragraph asserting the public schools shall not discriminate, the Center quotes a paragraph that says teachers being promoted to vacant positions may have their religious faiths questioned. 

The Center says this appears to violate both state and federal laws.
