DeKalb moves all graduations out of churches | www.myajc.com

Unlike in years past, none of the DeKalb County high school graduation ceremonies are occurring in churches this year.

All 26 DeKalb high school commencements are in secular venues such as the Georgia World Congress Center, the Atlanta Civic Center, the Fox Theatre, or school facilities, including outdoor stadiums. A dozen schools made the move this year because of concerns about violating the separation of church and state.

District spokeswoman Lillian Govus said parents complained last year about ceremonies in religious institutions.

But now, some other parents are unhappy with the result, saying it means higher costs for less-suitable facilities.
