Religion in Education: A Legal Perspective

by Bernard Schwartz - 1963

This article briefly summarizes the law on the separation between church and state as it has been articulated in the jurisprudence of the highest Court. It is true that analysis in solely legal terms can give but a partial picture with regard to a subject that has so many ramifications. At the same time, it can hardly be denied that the law plays a pivotal part in all aspects of our society. The Court, like other institutions, tends to mirror the society in which it sits. While the nation is working out the problem of church-state relationships, the judges can scarcely be expected to speak with only one voice.
