A federal judge rules that Wilson County schools must pay $171,000 in attorney fees for promoting Christian doctrine instead of educating children. When backwards school systems jettison their neutrality, courts should hit them where it hurts: in the pocket book. I doubt many school systems have the huge revenue base needed to absorb many of these penalties. It should teach them a thing or two about keeping their eye on the ball instead of sidetracking to cultural issues having little to do with making the next generation competitive.
