Description:

This paper examines prayer in the American school systems It bases its arguments on a recent request by a Virginian school for a minutes silence dedicated to prayer. The paper provides a survey of historical court rulings on this matter and proceeds to analyze opinions for and against the recent decision by the Virginian court.

From the Paper:

"Our constitution bans state-imposed religion and protects freedom of worship. The line between those two can be very fine, and last November 7, the Supreme Court drew that line by reinforcing a ruling in Virginia allowing a minute of silence in schools. During this moment of silence, students might pray, meditate, or simply remain neutral."
