School District Stops Bible Handout Program 11-09-2010

The superintendent of a southern Michigan school district says he's putting a stop to a Bible distribution program after a parent objected.
Jonesville Community Schools Superintendent Mike Potts says he doesn't see any need to continue the practice at Williams Elementary School.
Potts tells the Jackson Citizen Patriot the district will, however, continue another program that allows Williams students to leave the building during school hours for offsite Bible study.
Parent Kristen Finnegan contacted Potts to question the distribution program.
She tells the newspaper for a story Monday she is happy about the response from school officials.
Finnegan says she would have fought the program "to the end."
