Reminds me a bit of the discussion we had over this case, though that was much more severe than a few god-references in music class.

I thought of that discusion as well. It was regarding an ugly little monument in a public parking lot and I came down on the side of leaving well enough alone.

This one is different. It involves children in an public educational environment. It's completely inapropriate for a public school to be teaching children religous songs under any circumstance.

Besides, there are plenty of secular songs that can be used to teach kids. I remember singing 'Row Your Boat' with the musical concept being taught was singing in the round. It was quite fun, as I remember.

You hit the nail on the head about Donahue. What a jerk.
