Question

In arguing that it's ok for a teacher to display a student's religious art work in public school, what are the

best parts of the First Amendment to cite? As far as Supreme court cases, I plan to use  Stone v. Graham (1978), Edwards v. Aguillard (1987), but I need one more. I might go with  Van Orden v. Perry, McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky, or the case of Wallace v. Jaffree (1985).


In Wallace v. Jaffree, it was stated that the court would uphold that even 'moments of silence' in public school should not promote regular religious prayer by faculty or students. Does that mean: In the case of Wallace v. Jaffree (1985), the court ruled that even ' silent moments ' throughout public schools should not facilitate frequent spiritual meditation by staff or students. I have a problem with deciphering some of this legal lingo. I'm trying to break it down to understand it. Please help.
