TAUNTON, Mass. (AP) - An 8-year-old boy was sent home from school and ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation after he was asked to make a Christmas drawing and came up with what appeared to be a stick figure of Jesus on a cross, the child's father said Tuesday.
Chester Johnson told WBZ-TV that his son made the drawing on Dec. 2 after his second-grade teacher asked children to sketch something that reminded them of the holiday.
Johnson said the teacher became upset when his son said he drew himself on the cross. Johnson, who is black, told WBZ he suspects racism is involved. He said he thinks the school overreacted and wants an apology.
Johnson told the Taunton Daily Gazette, which first reported the story on Tuesday, that his son gets specialized reading and speech instruction and has never been violent in school.

...But if he brought in the book “King and King” or “Heather has Two Mommies” he’d have been praised by the school for “celebrating diversity”!
Why they want him transfered to another government school is beyond me. They need a private school or home schooling in that area.
Sadly there are large parts of this country where no one should send their kids to government schools.
If he woulda drawn a picture of Santa “fisting” an elf he’d be valedictorian....
Gets better and better...
All brought to you by Obama, the dems, and the craven scum-suckers that vote them into office.
Did you see this one from yesterday?
A battle over religion is brewing in central Indiana after a public school wanted second graders to sing a song declaring, Allah is God. The phrase was removed just before the performance after a national conservative group launched a protest.
They need to publish the teacher’s name. It’s not in the article. Otherwise it seems like some ambiguous bureaucracy did this. Some one is to blame and I think it’s the teacher.
