Making Sense of Religion in Public Schools

In 1947, the United States Supreme Court took a sharp left turn. How it interpreted the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and applied it to public schools in America changed education for generations. As a result, students, teachers, school officials, parents, and local religious leaders still struggle to understand allowable parameters for religious expression in public schools. This resource helps individuals understand their rights to exercise their faith, especially in educational settings. You’ll get answers to the most frequently asked questions about religion and the rights of students, teachers, families, school officials, and community leaders—as you sort through the legal maze of curriculum, outreach, and expression in public schools.
