Students of Huntington High School in Cabell County, West Virginia, United States, staged a protest last week after two teachers reportedly took their classes to a Fellowship of Christian Athletes assembly. The students, which numbered about 100, requested for “separation of church and state.”

According to the school, the non-instructional period of the classes which were taken to the assembly were not compulsory. In an interview with The Christian Post, Jedd Flowers, the director of communications, Cabell County Schools said, “Those teachers have been corrected and the district does not anticipate a similar issue in the future.”

Although the organization said that their events are voluntary, some students said that they were asked to say words of prayer if they desired to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ.
