This Marine vet was banned from his kid's school after objecting to Islam lessons
by Emma Brown
John Kevin Wood says his daughter's school has banned him from campus for more than a year, illegally punishing him for raising objections to classroom lessons about Islam. Now he's gone to court for help, asking a judge to remove the ban so he can watch his daughter graduate from high school.
"She's in the final semester of her senior year, and as it stands right now, she's going to have to go through that life experience without her dad there," said Kate Oliveri, a lawyer from the Michigan-based Thomas More Law Center who is representing the Wood family.
The dispute dates to October 2014, when Wood's daughter showed him several assignments for her 11th grade World History class at La Plata High in Charles County, Md.
