France: Teacher suspended after reading Bible verses at school

A primary school teacher in France was suspended after he reportedly read passages from the Bible to his students aged nine to eleven.

The teacher, 40, was working for a school in Malicornay in the department of Indre in central France, according to France Bleu.

The suspension arrived after a ‘group of parents’ wrote to the dean of the school an anonymous letter complaining about the incident and the possible violations of the French principles of secularism, La Croix reports.
