The Fayette School Board has issued a statement concerning the Federal lawsuit alleging violations of the Constitution.

A lawsuit filed this week in Federal Court by Washington DC-based American Humanist Association, on behalf of two un-named students and a parent in the Fayette School District, claims the school is violating the constitution by allowing prayer on campus. American Humanist Association legal spokesperson Monica Miller says prayer sessions are held in a classroom — and that they should stop immediately.
Miller acknowledges the prayer sessions are held in the morning before classes started.
