Religious Expression in Public Schools. A Legal Memorandum: Quarterly Law Topics for School Leaders. Vol. 6, No. 2, Winter 2006
Shoop, Robert J.
National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP)
The question is not, Will religious controversy hit your school? but rather, Will you be adequately grounded in knowledge about the law when it does? As communities have become more culturally diverse, the number of disagreements regarding the role and place of religion in schools has increased. Consequently, every principal must know the current legal status of religious expression. This "Legal Memorandum" highlights the most likely focal points of this conflict. [This "Legal Memorandum" is adapted from "The Principal's Quick-Reference Guide to School Law" (2nd ed.) by Dennis R. Dunklee and Robert J. Shoop (Corwin, 2006).]
