Newaygo Public Schools Meeting With Lawyer Over Christmas Display Controversy
Newaygo Public Schools says it will be making changes to a beloved Christmas decoration.
It comes after the Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists complained the display is a violation of church and state.
Sitting on top of Newaygo elementary school are the three wise men, facing the star of Bethlehem.
A display that’s been a tradition for decades.
The school board heard public comment on the situation Monday.
Members went into a closed session.
And WOOD TV 8 reports when they came back said they have “no desire to remove the display.”
But that they would think about ways to change it to reflect of the district’s goals.
