Ionia Public Schools (MI) Accused of Promoting Religious Graduation Ceremony

Ron Wilson, the superintendent of the Ionia Public Schools in Michigan, is the guy who recently wrote in a local newspaper that the “growth of atheistic and secular humanist influence in our society appears to be eroding the fabric of our nation.”

You won’t be surprised to learn, then, that his district has been promoting religion. According to a letter sent to him by the Freedom From Religion Foundation on behalf of a local family, the Ionia Public Schools has “organized and promoted a baccalaureate ceremony for graduating Ionia High School seniors on District property and at District expense.”
