I’m a public school teacher in Oregon so this does have a direct affect on me. But to be honest, I’m of two mind on this issue. On one hand, showing my faith could be a good thing in the classroom so that students can identify me as a Christian (though when I have a bad day and my temper is shorter than it should be, I would feel kind of hypocritical wearing that shirt). However, at the same time, I know that when kids have things like that shoved in their face repeatedly it could actually hinder their desire to come to Christ.
What do you think? If you were a public school teacher, would you wear religious clothing in class? Why or why not?
