Subscribe to RSS - Use of School Buildings by Religious Groups

The Supreme Court has ruled that, under certain conditions, public schools may allow religious and community groups to meet in public schools on weekends or after school hours. Americans United believes that if a school does this, it must treat all groups equally. In addition, no permanent religious symbols should be erected in the schools. Religious groups should not have long-term arrangements with public schools and should be working toward finding their own buildings for worship.
