Religion in the Public Schools

School districts have to navigate seemingly contradictory legal requirements in the area of religion in public schools. Schools cannot establish religion by coercing, endorsing, or promoting religious views in schools. At the same time, schools cannot interfere with individuals’ free expression of their beliefs. Fortunately, legal authority exists to help districts effectively address the issues that may arise regarding religious expression in public schools. TASB Legal Services has provided several resources to assist districts in applying these basic legal principles.
