School Prayer

FAYETTE, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri high school continues to hold prayer sessions on school grounds despite a legal complaint that claims the sessions are unconstitutional.

Fayette Schools Superintendent Tamara Kimball says district administrators haven't considered ending the Friday morning sessions since the American Humanist Association filed a complaint in November. She says the district doesn't believe it's doing anything wrong by allowing the Fellowship of Christian Students to conduct the sessions.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that the humanist association filed the complaint, along with a student and a parent of a former student. They allege the sessions violate the constitutional prohibition against the government establishing an official religion.

The complaint also alleges the sessions occur during school, but district officials say they are held after school doors are unlocked but before classes officially begin.
