Texas Teacher's Controversial Assignment Questioned Religious Beliefs

A Texas teacher is being accused of trying to force one of her 7th graders to deny the existence of God with a writing assignment.

Jordan Wooley, 12, and her classmates were given a critical thinking worksheet and instructed to pick if something was fact, opinion or common assertion. One of the statements: "There is a God."

Wooley answered "fact" and "opinion" but she says the teacher told her those answers were wrong and that she had to admit God wasn't real.

Wooley told reporters, "I didn't know what to do."

Her mother was outraged and called on the school district to investigate. Katy ISD says it interviewed eight of the 22 students who were in that same classroom – but none of them corroborated Jordan's story.

One district official said, "Based upon the facts of the principal's investigation, those assertions just are not true. "

The assignment has been, quote, "addressed appropriately by the principal." However, Jordan's mother says she is trying to move her daughter out of the teacher's class.
