Fed-Up Student Schools Teacher, Demands Better Education (Video)
Teacher Under Investigation For Handing Out 'Bible Cookies'
A high school teacher in Stockton, CA, is being investigated after an anonymous student filed a complaint against him for handing out "Bible cookies" in class.
According to Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a First Amendment group, John Alameda of New Vision High School, is accused of "unlawful proselytization." Along with handing out the Bible-themed snacks as a form of reward, the student also reported that the teacher offers extra credit for copying down Bible verses. The AUSCS sees both alleged activities as a violation of the Constitution.

According to John McGinnis, a legal fellow for AUSCS, the complaint also states that Alameda sponsors an after-school Bible club, and frequently promotes attendance at club meetings. Though Alameda has yet to comment publicly on the issue, Clark Burke, the Manteca Unified School District deputy superintendent, has issued a statement.
"The Manteca Unified School District is currently conducting an investigation into the complaint filed by the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. While respecting the diversity and beliefs of our community, the Manteca Unified School District is dedicated to ensure the separation of Church and State as prescribed by law," he wrote.
