CURRENT FEDERAL LAW (2010) ALLOWS YOUR CHILD TO PRAY IN   SCHOOL, TO BRING RELIGIOUS LITERATURE TO SCHOOL, TO SAY THE  PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, TO HOLD A CHRISTMAS PAGEANT, TO SAY   "MERRY CHRISTMAS" (PROTECTED FREE SPEECH), AND TO BE LET  OUT OF SCHOOL EARLY FOR RELIGIOUS STUDIES (INCLUDING   LEARNING  CHRISTMAS CAROLS FOR THAT PAGEANT).

Guidance on Constitutionally Protected Prayer in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools  February 7, 2003 SECTION 9524: PRAYER IN SCHOOL

Section 9524 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act ("ESEA") of 1965, as  amended  by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, requires the Secretary to issue  guidance on  constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary and secondary  schools. In  addition, Section 9524 requires that, as a condition of receiving ESEA funds, a  local educational agency  ("LEA") must certify in writing to its State educational agency  ("SEA")  that it has no policy that  prevents, or otherwise denies participation in, constitutionally  protected prayer in public schools as set forth in this guidance.

(They can lose federal $ if  they discriminate against your child's religious rights, but you must file a complaint first.)  The purpose of this guidance is to provide SEAs, LEAs, and the public with information on the  current state of the law concerning constitutionally protected prayer in the public schools,  and thus to clarify the extent to which prayer in public schools is legally protected. This  guidance also sets forth the responsibilities of SEAs and LEAs with respect to Section 9524 of  the ESEA. As required by the Act, this guidance has been jointly approved by the Office of the  General Counsel in the Department of Education and the Office of Legal Counsel in the  Department of Justice as reflecting the current state of the law. It will be made available on the  Internet through the Department of Education's web site (www.ed.gov). The guidance will be  updated on a biennial basis, beginning in September 2004, and provided to SEAs, LEAs, and  the public.READ MORE HERE:

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE PROTECTION OF PUPIL RIGHTS  AMENDMENT? OF COURSE NOT. READ IT BELOW AND GO TO THE LINK PROVIDED.

PARENTS, YOU CAN AND YOU MUST TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION.
IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO HOME SCHOOL, THEN  RUN FOR A POSITION ON THE SCHOOL BOARD, OR AT LEAST GO TO THE  SCHOOL BOARD AND DEMAND THAT THESE LAWS BE IMPLEMENTED.

  IF THEY REFUSE, YOU CAN SUE.   Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) 
  The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232h; 34 CFR Part 98)   applies to programs that receive funding from the U.S. Department of Education (ED).   PPRA  is intended to protect the rights of parents and students in two ways:

  • It seeks to ensure that schools and contractors make instructional materials available for inspection by parents if those materials will be used in connection with an ED-funded survey, analysis, or evaluation in which their children participate; and

  • It seeks to ensure that schools and contractors obtain written parental consent before minor students are required to participate in any ED-funded survey, analysis, or evaluation that reveals information concerning:

 

  

 

 

 

1.  Political affiliations;

2.  Mental and psychological problems potentially embarrassing
     to the student and his/her family;

3.  Sex behavior and attitudes;

4.  Illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating and demeaning behavior;

5.  Critical  appraisals of other individuals with whom respondents have close      family relationships;

6.  Legally recognized privileged or analogous relationships, such as those of      lawyers, physicians, and ministers; or

7.  Income (other than that required by law to determine eligibility for      participation in a  program or for receiving financial assistance under such      program).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parents or students who believe their rights under PPRA may have been violated may file a complaint with ED by writing...READ MORE HERE...THEN ACT!
