Prayer in School
A federal lawsuit has been filed in Spartanburg, South Carolina, against a school district for allowing the local high school to grant credit to students for attending religious release-time instruction. Two parents dispute that public school credit should not be awarded for evangelical teaching. The anti-religion parents claim that their children are being “adversely affected” academically because their children cannot participate in these programs. Children with a religious background have a better advantage to receive a higher GPA, the parents argue.
