Our country has become increasingly diverse and for more than two hundred years, America has maintained Judeo-Christian principled communities. Our schools are now comprised of Christians, Jewish, Buddhists, Muslims, and Catholics faiths. In this section, learners will be exposed to the aspects of religion in public schools and understand the rights of students as outlined by the First Amendment.
Assignment 5 Week 5: Religion and Education
A heavily debated issue in America concerns religion in public schools. The First Amendment prohibits establishing or promoting religious worship in schools. Gollnick and Chinn (2009) stated �Throughout the history of this country, various individuals and groups tend to interpret this amendment to meet their own needs and interests. For some people, religious emphasis is appropriate in the public schools as long as it is congruent with their own religious persuasion� (p 239).
Assessing the Impact of Religion on Education

Chapter 7- Religion
Although the Supreme Court voted in 1963 to remove prayer books from schools, the issue is still hotly debated.

Activity (2 pages of 350 words)
In this activity, please craft a well written and well thought out response to the following scenario.
The superintendent of the Shady Tree School District is concerned with an application filed with the State�s Department of Education to open a charter school in the district. The opening of a charter school will decrease the state funding to the district, so views on charter schools from the community are mixed. The charter school being proposed will require all students to take Hebrew to fulfill their state�s mandated world language requirement. The founder of the charter school shared with the media the school is not faith based, religion will not be taught and the classroom structure will be segregated based upon gender to ensure less distractions. The community and media are giving much attention to this charter school application because it�s funding will come from public funds.
As a member of the community, please create a letter to the newspaper editor responding to the situation. Your letter may support or oppose the opening of this charter school. Please use citations to support your reasoning and facts shared.
Your response should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
