This program was part of a “Washington Journal” series highlighting magazine articles.
Lee Lawrence talked about her Christian Science Monitor cover story, “Prayer in School,” on the Supreme Court 1962 and 1963 decisions on school-sponsored prayer, and how the issue was making a comeback in schools across the country. Among the topics she discussed were the history of the court cases, the make-up of the Court in the 1960s, more recent cases challenging the decisions.
