When first-grader Zachary Hood was told he could read a favorite story to his class, he chose the account of Jacob and Esau in the Bible. His teacher, however, felt that wasn't a suitable choice for a public school classroom. Zachary's responded by filing a lawsuit against his former teacher and the Medford, New Jersey, public school system.
