LINK: Bonner Springs student files lawsuit after prayer flyers banned

BONNER SPRINGS, KAN. ----- A seventh-grader inside the Bonner Springs School District has filed a lawsuit after her prayer flyers were banned at Robert E. Clark Middle School.

More information from Fox 4 Kansas City:
A middle school student is fighting back after she was banned from posting flyers promoting “See You at the Pole,” a prayer event that’s held every year at public schools across the nation.

According to court documents, a school counselor ‘forcefully’ told the student, identified only as K.R., her flyers were “illegal,” citing separation of church and state. Court documents state the counselor confronted K.R. after school hours during a school dance in front of her friends. The flyers were subsequently taken down and destroyed by school staff.
