Should We Check This School Official's Library?

“My goal throughout this process has been to defend my daughter’s religious liberty,” Marcos Perez said in a statement. “I am thankful that the school now believes that something clearly happened when my daughter attempted to say Grace, and are taking swift action to correct the situation.”

“We are grateful that Carillon Elementary School is now taking this matter seriously and conducting a thorough investigation,” added Jeremy Dys, senior counsel at the Liberty Institute. “We hope that, at the conclusion of this investigation, school officials will apologize for this clear violation of the Perez family’s religious liberty and begin to restore the trust of the community.”
A public school official has told a 6 year-old that "It's not good" to pray. Wow. Should we check and see what kind of books are in this school official's personal library? Maybe this person has been reading Darwin or Nietzsche or the writings of some other godless, subversive pagan. Reading lists must be approved don't you know. But the problem is who will do the approving?
