Middle School Jesus Portrait

A painting of Jesus Christ, upper left, hangs above an entrance to Jackson Middle School in Jackson, Ohio next to a “Hall of Honor” showing famous Jackson residents and school alumni, on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013. The Jesus portrait has been displayed in the school since 1947. The board voted 4-0 Tuesday night to keep the painting up despite a federal lawsuit that contends the portrait unconstitutionally promotes religion in a public school.
