School Board to Discuss Ten Commandments Plaques

MULDROW, Okla. (AP) — The Muldrow school board is to discuss a complaint about Ten Commandments plaques that hang in each of the school's classrooms.

The board is to meet Monday to discuss the complaint by an unidentified student that calls for the plaques to be removed.

Pastor Shawn Money of Muldrow First Assembly of God and the Muldrow Ministerial Alliance told the Times Record (http://bit.ly/120TFmY ) that he expects hundreds to turn out for the meeting. Money says he believes the Ten Commandments have a place in classrooms — but realizes the school can't afford a legal battle and he will support whatever decision the board makes.

School Superintendent Ron Flanagan did not return phone calls seeking comment.

The school is near the Oklahoma-Arkansas state line — about 10 miles west of Fort Smith.
