School Committee Addresses ‘God Bless America’ Complaint

Wayland Patch 8/1/12: School Committee Addresses 'God Bless America' Complaint. Legal counsel for Wayland Public Schools has advised that no action need be taken at this time related to a complaint about the Wayland High School band playing "God Bless America."

Superintendent Paul Stein told School Committee members Monday night that a parent had recently expressed "concern that on two occasions – around Pearl Harbor Day and the other around Memorial Day – the band played 'God Bless America.'"

"This parent felt strongly that this was a violation of the separation of church and state," Stein said.
