To Pray or Not To Pray: A Court Strikes Down Prayer at Board Meetings.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v186 n9 p18-19,63 Sep 1999
In 1992, a high-school student and a math teacher sued the Cleveland Public Schools in Federal District Court, contending that the board's opening prayers violated the establishment clause and the Ohio Constitution. The 6th Circuit Court upheld this suit, saying school-board prayer differs from permissible legislative prayer. (MLH)
