Wake County teacher suspended with pay for telling students not to wear rosaries in class

You have the unusual situation of an apparently Catholic teacher being suspended with pay following a complaint from a Baptist parent about students being told not to wear rosaries in class.

As noted in today's article, the Wake County school system has suspended with pay Patricia Corbino, a sixth-grade science teacher at Leesville Road Middle School. She admitted in an email to a parent to having told her students not to wear rosaries as necklaces in her classroom.

The parent who filed the complaint, Yvonne McCarty, isn't Catholic so neither she nor her daughter would wear a rosary. But McCarty is charging that Corbino's actions violated the rights of the students to express their religion.
