  • New York State Board of Education presented a prayer to be recited each morning in class. There were parents that objected to the prayer a filed a suit in NY. (New Hyde Park School)
  • "The prayers have to be taught to the students, therefore the teachers are TEACHING the students about religion"
  • Court ruled that the prayers were to be permitted. "As long as the schools did not compel any student to join in the prayer over his/her parents' objection"
  • Practice: 2+1=3 4+7=11 5+5=10
