Answer preview

This case concerned the issue of school prayer. The outcome was that public schools could not be allowed to sponsor religious activities. A district school in Texas allowed a chaplain student leader to use the public-address system to lead a prayer before the commencement of football games. This action prompted several parents and students to sue the district school over claims that the school violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The section, apparently, prohibited the Congress from formulating rules that honor a religion’s formation or preventing free exercise of the same thereof.[1]

Summary

The Supreme Court issued a ruling that rendered the policy of the district school regarding prayer unconstitutional. Although the students led the prayers, they were still considered as activities sponsored by the school and as such were coercive since they forced students into positions of getting involved in a religious observance. The Court quoted the Constitution that demanded that institutions must not force the tough alternative between avoiding offensive religious ceremonies and attending games on students. The judges went ahead to emphasize that no public school is prohibited by the constitution to allow its students to voluntarily take part in prayers any time during, prior to or after the school day.
