Neutral Schooling
Teaching Qs


Fairness for Freethought
in Public Schools

There is a "constitutional bottom line" for the teachers and administrators who choose to work in a public school system. 


When carrying out their duties, they are subject to the First Amendment's Establishment Clause and are required to be neutral concerning religion.  

They may not show preference to religion generally, nor may they prefer one religion over others.  

As interpreted by the courts, there is a two-fold nature to the neutrality concept in that it acknowledges "freedom of conscience" rights of individuals of any faith, or none.


Public schools may not advance any religious doctrine.


Neither may they promote religion itself over nonreligion.
