Elizabeth Petersen is a Ladue Middle School science teacher, and is also the legislative liaison for the Science Teachers of Missouri. Petersen participated in a conversation about Amendment 2 on St. Louis Public Radio which aired on August 1, 2012, linked here.

On Aug. 7, 2012, Amendment 2 was passed by a wide margin, with 83% voting for it. Amendment 2 basically adds to the Missouri Constitution rights already built into the U.S. Bill of Rights regarding freedom of religion. The only portion of the bill altering current public school practices is the requirement to post the U.S. Bill of Rights in all schools.
