Bill proposed to ‘protect’ student, faculty religious expression in schools
Michael Williams
State Sen. Michael Williams, R-Cumming
A bill filed Monday in the Georgia General Assembly would address religious speech and expression in public schools for both students and faculty. State Sen. Michael Williams, R-Cumming, sponsored Senate Bill 361, which would be called the Coach Small Religious Protection Act. The bill’s namesake is a reference to East Coweta High School football coach John Small, who received complaints from the Freedom from Religion Foundation regarding pregame prayer.
