Religion in classroom? Pew confirms it's still there
There's an old saying that no matter what the courts say, there will be prayer in schools as long as there are tests.

A new Pew survey of teens finds a variety of religious practice taking place in public schools.

"About a quarter of teens who attend public schools say they often or sometimes see students invite other students to religious youth groups or worship services. About one-in-six (16%) often or sometimes see other students praying before lunch in their public school. And 8% report that they commonly see other teenagers reading religious scripture outside of class during the school day," Pew said. ...

The Lord clearly directs fathers to raise their children in His nurture and admonition (Ephesians 6:3), echoing His commands in the OT. If parents delegate this work to others, those same parents need to ensure that the task is delegated to entities who will complete the task in a worthwhile and accurate manner. Too often, it is the government which feels it is charged with this duty. And then our children learn that the earth is coming to an end because of global warming (rather than global sin & the Lord's patience with it ending) and our society will come to an end unless socialism is adopted.

The old saying was at least echoed by Reagan if it didnt originate from him.

Meanwhile, there are major annual efforts like "Meet Me at the Flagpole" and "Bring Your Bible to School Day." If there could be good nbrs on participation, they might be better stats to consider.

The catholic bible contains the gospel and some extra, non inspired works. Better than no bible at all which would also give you no gospel.

And Roe, though nonsense, won’t likely fall

Pew Research wrote:
Conflicts over religion in school are hardly new. In the 19th century, Protestants and Catholics frequently fought over Bible reading and prayer in public schools. The disputes then were over which Bible and which prayers were appropriate to use in the classroom. Some Catholics were troubled that the schools’ reading materials included the King James version of the Bible, which was favored by Protestants. In 1844, fighting broke out between Protestants and Catholics in Philadelphia; a number of people died in the violence and several Catholic churches were burned. Similar conflicts erupted during the 1850s in Boston and other parts of New England. In the early 20th century, liberal Protestants and their secular allies battled religious conservatives over whether students in biology classes should be taught Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.
excerpt from, "Religion in the Public Schools"

Well, at least with all the Catholic judges on the Supreme Court not only should Roe vs Wade be removed, but readings from the Catholic Bible can be reinstated into public schools also?

Religion in the classroom????

That's like saying 'Religion is in society'

I have heard it stated in the media that there is as much as Five quote "faiths" taught in schools.
This is the type of statement that Liberalism comes out with.
Thus people who have no idea what they are talking about.

Children in today's schools are being indoctrinated into the wild and ignorant judgments made by those who do not know what they are talking about.

Christian truth and doctrine is being sidelined by uninitiated people who have not studied or learned the facts of Bible teaching and theology.
Decisions made in ignorance and then taught to children ???
Bad Education.

The blind are leading the blind again.

Right on, Marty, this article is rubbish. It's a wonder WND--World Nut Daily--would even publish it. I thought WaPo or NY Times would cover it, as an answer to conservatives saying there is no religion in school.
We can stack this story alongside the ones about how high the percentage is of prisoners who say they believe in God. I think it is over 90 percent, but it also includes the many Nation of Islam disciples, Roman Catholics, Mormons, JWs, etc.

This article is nonsense. The schools are overflowing with the religion of humanism. Some schools are Christian, some schools are Islamic, some schools are Buddhist, most schools are humanist.

Pew Research wrote:
•Most American teens (64%) say they rarely or never discuss religion with their friends, and only 5% say they often engage in such discussions. Again, evangelical Protestants are much more likely than others to engage in this type of religious behavior; roughly six-in-ten evangelical teens say they sometimes (47%) or often (11%) talk to their friends about religion, compared with four-in-ten mainline Protestant teens, a third of Catholics and about one-in-five religious “nones” who at least sometimes discuss religion with friends.
