In God We Teach
March 3, 2013
At our March 2013 CFI Lecture and Movie night, we will be airing the award winning documentary “In God We Teach” followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker, Vic Losick, via Skype. The showing will take place at First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh, 605 Morewood Ave, Pittsburgh (Shadyside), PA from 7:00-9:00pm. A description of the documentary follows:
Are teachers allowed to express their personal opinions in the classroom? Are teachers allowed “academic freedom”? And can competing theories be taught alongside evolution in a public classroom?These and other questions are the focus of the full-length documentary, “In God We Teach,” which follows the “separation of church and state” controversy played out in a very public feud between a high school student and his history teacher in Kearny, NJ, a blue-collar, all-American town within sight of downtown New York.
