Two students in Enola, Pennsylvania, have issued complaints about a necklace worn by their teacher.

In 1949, Act 14 (Sect. 1112) prohibited public school teachers from showing any kind of religious symbol or imagery in the classroom.

Now, a parent of one of the two students at East Pennsboro Middle School has issued a formal complaint to the school district, claiming a teacher is violating the law by wearing the Star of David on their necklace.

“They are there to learn about education, not to learn about the religious points of view,” Ernest Perce told ABC 27. “If a child is subjected to a teacher where a symbol of Judaism is allowed to skirt the law,

I believe that a Muslim should be allowed to cover her head as well as a Christian to cover her head like the Bible commands,” Perce continued.

Perce went on to tell ABC 27 that he was once an atheist, but recently became an Orthodox Christian. Two years ago, he protested the 2012 “Year of the Bible.”

Perce reached out to the school’s district attorney and was not pleased with the response. The letter said that the school will not force the teacher to “discontinue wearing the religious symbol,” citing a ruling in western Pennsylvania that permitted a teacher assistant to wear a Christian cross.

Perce, however, is still fighting the case. He said that the board could be fined and the teacher suspended, according to the 1949 law. For now, Perce has removed his child from the teacher’s classroom.

  1. My Granddaughter was told to take her pentagram necklace off and not wear it to school…..while telling this to a 12 year old, the teacher was wearing a Christian cross. It’s not a teachers or students job to monitor anothers jewelry or relegion.

  2. The child’s father is being completely ridiculous. He is also setting a poor example about accepting ALL people. I have four children and I never taught them to be “judges”. And they all grew up and are very kind people.

  3. You ignorant SOB. I am Catholic and wear a miraculous metal. I am not offended by a necklace that someone of another religion wears. It is not teaching anything. Muslims covering their heads doesn’t offend me either but that is quite different than a necklace. Let them suffer in the heat. However, covering ones head hides who and what they are. Anyone can do that. Crooks and murderer’s can hide behind them. Get a life weirdo.
