Because they are such fundamental freedoms in this country, debates over their scope and limitations are often very impassioned. One such debate is the question of whether or not prayer should be mandated in public schools. This is not merely a religious or educational topic, however; it is also a hotly debated political issue. On one side are conservatives who believe that encouragi

Important factors, he said, are whether the legal question has been decided differently by two lower courts and needs resolution by the high court, whether a
