  Religion & Public Schools

Religion & Public Schools: Striking a Constitutional Balance (Third Edition) represents an ongoing effort by members of the NSBA Council of School Attorneys. In the interval between this publication and the Councilís previous book on religion published in 2001, the Supreme Court has handed down several opinions reflecting a changing approach to resolving Establishment Clause issues. As the jurisprudential landscape shifts, it will be even more imperative that school attorneys understand the law so that they may properly advise their school board clients about how to handle various issues that call for careful balancing between religious freedoms and principles of church-state separation embodied in the First Amendment.

The end product is a complex set of policies that sometimes deal more with legal compliance and requirements rather than the local school boardís vision, direction, and goals for student learning.
