POWAY (AP) — A San Diego County schoolteacher has lost his battle to display banners referring to God in his classroom.
The U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the case last month without comment.
Westview High School math teacher Bradley Johnson kept large banners in his classroom with slogans such as “In God We Trust,” ”One Nation Under God,” and “God Bless America.”
He took them down in 2007 after the Poway Unified School District said they violated the school’s secular education mission.
Johnson challenged the order on First Amendment grounds but lost in federal appeals court.
