Does a public school policy requiring teachers to lead willing students in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance violate the Establishment Clause? This case summary shows how the Supreme Court answered that question in 2004.
The book Our Rights, written by David J. Bodenhamer, uses historical case studies to explore the rights in the Constitution. Supreme Court cases are used to demonstrate how a right received its modern interpretation, how the right applies today, and how courts and other interpreters seek to balance this right with important societal concerns such as public safety.
