Prayer board removed from middle school classroom

LAMAR COUNTY (WJTV) – Last month, there was controversy surrounding a Hattiesburg middle school teacher’s use of a prayer board in her classroom.

Earlier today we learned the school will be removing the board.

In regard to the removal of the board, the school district said they want to remind everyone, quote, “that, as public employees, you must refrain from using public classrooms to promote religion and prayer specifically.”
