Texas Prayer in Public Schools Laws
The issue of prayer in public schools has been a hot-button issue for quite some time, pitting the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment against the freedom of expression. Some states have no statutory provisions for school prayer and tend to rely on federal law, which allows limited prayer as long as it doesn't alienate any one group of students. Texas prayer in public schools laws provides students with the "absolute right" to voluntarily pray in a way that is nondisruptive.
