A public middle school and high school planned to hold a musical assembly — featuring a religious band with a singer known to regularly give speeches about his religious beliefs during performances — during the school day. AU sent a letter explaining that the inclusion of religious content in a school assembly violates the U.S. Constitution, and the school acted to ensure that the assembly was completely secular and that there were reasonable alternative activities for students who did not wish to attend the assembly.
