A Christmas Meditation

Updated below.

A Taunton man says his 8-year-old son was sent home from school and ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation after drawing a stick figure Jesus on a cross.

The man told the Taunton Daily Gazette his second-grader made the drawing after his teacher asked children to sketch something that reminded them of Christmas. He said the teacher at Maxham Elementary School thought the drawing was too violent.

Jingle bells or nothing in the Massachusetts school system.  Figures.  No room at the inn.

Update: Superintendent of schools denies report.

Second Update: Father of boy stands by story.
