School Prayer Lawsuit Settled

The Freedom From Religion Foundation announced Monday the settlement of its lawsuit against the Emanuel County, Georgia school system. (See prior posting.)  The suit challenged prayer in kindergarten and first grade classrooms and the mistreatment of students who objected. FFRF says it is dismissing its suit after the county implemented teacher training on the obligation not to promote religious beliefs in the classroom and paid damages to the complaining family.
