Abstract

The heated debate over issues of separation of church and state presents few more controversial questions than the one addressed in the recently passed Equal Access Act-that of the proper role of religion in the public schools. The Act addresses a narrow slice of this broad issue, the question whether student religious groups should be allowed to meet on public school premises. Into a deliberation already complicated by competing local interests and state and federal legal requirements, the Act injects yet another element- a federal directive to local school districts to allow such groups to meet.
