Parent wants 'God is Dead' art removed from class
By The Associated Press
COVINGTON - Administrators at a Georgia high school say there are no plans to remove student artwork with the proclamation that "God is Dead!" despite complaints from at least one parent.
Crystal Mitchell tells WAGA-TV that the artwork in a classroom at Alcovy High School in Covington upset her 10th grade daughter. She says the piece doesn't belong in a public school and should be taken down.
Newton County School System officials say language arts students created the drawings, and the artwork's statement that God is dead is from a quote in Arthur Miller's play ``The Crucible.''
