Cumberland County Schools still displays the Ten Commandments in multiple elementary/high schools. The School Board voted to keep them in 6-3 vote back in March 2018.
This is a gross violation of the rights of Cumberland County School students, families, and employees. Everyone within the public schools deserves a neutral environment where anyone of any beliefs or none at all can thrive. You cannot have freedom of religion without freedom from religion.
If you are a Cumberland County School student, a student’s guardian, or employee who wishes to do something about this violation, please contact the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) using this link: [ffrf.org]

Additionally, I encourage anyone near the Crossville area to write the School Board asking them to reverse their decision, remove the Ten Commandments plaques, and respect the rights of our students. The more complaints, the better.
