FFRF ends teacher led prayer in Alabama grade schools (Jan. 15, 2013)

Two grade schools in Albertville, Ala., have been reminded teacher-led prayer is unconstitutional by the Freedom from Religion Foundation.

FFRF Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel contacted Albertville City Schools Superintendent Dr. Frederic Ayer in a letter on Jan. 7, 2013. Seidel asked Ayer to investigate and take action against the teacher-led prayer, which was happening daily before lunch in the two Albertville grade schools.

Seidel was notified that Ayer sent a letter on Jan. 14 to all administrators and teachers in Albertville schools requesting them not to ask, lead, or direct students to pray or set aside class time for students to pray.
