Abstract

State Education Commissioner Leo Martin wanted Michael Heath, executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine to chair the Maine Department of Education's Religious Institutions Task Force, which is charged with developing a plan to teach values, sex education, drug abuse prevention and other programs in schools and churches. Sally Sutton, executive director of the Maine Civil Liberties Union, expressed concern about the appointment, saying it raises questions about the separation of church and state. Heath said he would probably step aside in favor of someone more neutral.
