NUMBER 186 THE NEWSPAPER OF EDUCATION RIGHTS JULY 2001

Good news!
'Good News'! 
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled June 11 that religious clubs may meet in public schools after regular class hours. In a 6-3 decision, the high court found that prohibiting the Good News (Bible) Club from meeting after school in the Milford School District in New York was unconstitutional discrimination based on the club's views. The school district allows after-school access to "social, civic and recreational" groups. The club's leader expressed satisfaction with the ruling and pointed out that the club meetings have nothing to do with school. "We're just using a school building after hours," she explained. "We don't want the government mandating prayer over the public address system or anything like that."
