Mum faces dismissal for asking for prayer

Jennie Cain Mrs. Jennie Cain asked her church and Christian friends to pray for a situation involving her daughter at the school for which Mrs. Cain works and her daughter attends.

Mrs. Cain's daughter Jasmine was ticked off by a teacher for discussing Heaven and Hell with a fellow pupil and came home in tears.

After comforting her distraught daughter, sent a private email to ten close Christian friends asking them to offer prayers for the families and the school.

But a copy fell into the hands of Gary Read, headmaster at Landscore Primary School, in Crediton, Devon.

Now Mrs Cain, 38, is being investigated for professional misconduct for allegedly making claims against the school and staff members. She may be disciplined and even faces dismissal.

Her case was raised in the House of Commons yesterday by an MP referring to the “systematic and institutional discrimination towards Christians”.

And Archbishop John Sentamu has expressed his support in an article for a national newspaper.
