Maine School Employee Reprimanded for Telling Churchgoing Coworker ‘I Will Pray for You’

A special education technician at a public high school in Maine has filed a federal complaint against her school district after she was reprimanded for telling a coworker, who is a member of her church, that she would pray for them.

According to her complaint, Toni Richardson began expressing concern last fall about a new member of her special education team at Cony High School whose demeanor on the job was marked by frustration and “mood swings.”

At one point, in seeking to provide a word of encouragement after noticing her coworker’s difficulty transitioning to the new job, she told him privately that she would pray for him. CHRISTIAN NEWS
