Eklund v. Byron Union School District (2006)

 
IssueIs the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment violated when a public elementary school has students adopt a persona of a member of a religion and act out religious activities and practices under the guise of cultural education? May an opt out provision negate the coercion element of free exercise or parental rights violation in a public school context when parents are unaware of both the opt out right and objectionable religious instruction?
