The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District shifted the landscape concerning prayer in our public schools.
The case involved petitioner Joseph Kennedy, who lost his job as a high school football coach in the Bremerton School District in Bremerton, Washington, after he knelt at midfield after games to offer a quiet personal prayer. He sued in federal court, alleging that the district’s actions violated the First Amendment’s free speech and free exercise clauses.
The case will be the subject of a lively discussion at noon Aug. 11, when Ray Pinney, director of county activities and member engagement at New Jersey School Boards Association, interviews Marc Zitomer, a partner with Schenk, Price, Smith & King LLC, about what the Supreme Court’s decision means for school districts during a Blog Talk Radio program.
