(KMOV.com) – The mother of a Potosi High School student said a teacher went too far when her daughter was reprimanded for carrying a Bible around school.

Angela English says her daughter, Kiela, called her from school saying a teacher yelled at her for carrying a Bible and discussing religion with a classmate. 

Her daughter wasn't punished, but she says it's clear even talking about the Bible in the hallways of the high school isn't acceptable. 

Angela started using Facebook to plan a Bible protest for students to stand up for their religious rights at school on Thursday.

"We've asked the children to bring the Bibles and carry it, not preach and shove religion in their face but to show they have the right to carry the Bible," said Angela English. 

News 4 has tried contacting the Potosi School District for comment, but have not heard back.
