Religion at School

Prayer in school is one of the most hotly-debated issues involving religion in America. Indeed, the separation of church and state is deeply rooted in our Constitution. While public schools are not supposed to support one particular religious belief, neither should a school require others to accept religious or anti-religious beliefs. The “Religion at School” section focuses on school prayer and the pledge of allegiance, including the reasons for the constitutional ban, legal challenges, and the "minute of silence" option. The Supreme Court has weighed in on this hot-button issue and school prayer cases will likely continue to be heard in the courts. For more information, choose from the links below.
