This paper is about religion in public schools. It looks at this issue in relation to the regulations of the First Amendment. A case is given where a child was not allowed to read a bible story in class for fear it may influence other children. The paper questions how far schools should go in enforcing the First Amendment.
From the Paper:"The debate about the expression of religion in our nation's public schools is a very prevalent issue. There have been numerous lawsuits against public schools, and the debate about including religion in the curriculum of state-run schools is a central issue in Congress, the Supreme Court and even the Presidential Election. The first amendment guarantees the right to freedom of expression, and expressing one's own religion is key to the meaning of the first amendment. The first amendment guarantees that someone can freely practice their religion, but a conflict arises between the doctrines of the separation church and state and this freedom to express religion. Many questions arise when examining the middle ground between these two points. The consideration of allowing prayer in public schools is one of the most obvious places where this debate is currently an important issue."
