Hail Mary: Coach-Led Prayers on the 50-Yard Line
Can coaches pray after games? What if students are present? The U.S. Supreme Court recently decided its first case about religion in public schools in many years, Kennedy v. Bremerton Public Schools. This new opinion examines how the rights of an individual employee to free exercise of religion intersect with the school district’s obligation to avoid an “establishment” of religion. What does this case mean for your district? Join a panel of experienced members of the Texas Council of School Attorneys for this CSA Spotlight session on school prayer.
Saturday, September 24, 3 – 4 p.m.
