Prayer in Public Schools: US Dep't of Education Guidelines

I responded today to an inquiry about prayer in public schools. The sender of the email I received indicated that a student had been told by public school officials in Maryland that he was not permitted to thank God for his food prior to eating lunch.

The inquiry reminded me of the guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Education back in 2003. They're available on the web here. Definitely a good resource.
