Welcome to our new gateway!

By Charles C. Haynes
First Amendment senior scholar

Welcome to the First Amendment Center’s new resource center for issues related to religion and religious liberty in public schools.

The page you will see at is a new “gateway” to all of the resources at the First Amendment Center concerning religious liberty in public schools. Our aim is to provide objective, accurate information for educators, students, school board members and parents about the place of religion in public schools under the First Amendment.

We make every effort to give nonpartisan, balanced guidance that has broad support from many religious, educational and civil liberties organizations.

We want to hear from you. Send me your questions and comments about issues in your school district, additional resources you would like to see on this site, or anything else that interests you about religion in public schools.

Today the site features “Beyond the school wars: What every public school can do to avoid conflicts over religion and find common ground,” a report based on the proceedings of a conference held at the First Amendment Center in Nashville. Check it out and send me your feedback.
