Prayer at school activities will be the subject of a Utah Policy Forum Thursday, Sept. 27, at Little America. Ray Briscoe, Utah educator and chairman of the Davis County School Board will speak at 8:10 a.m.
Briscoe is state president of Americans United, an organization devoted to church-and-state issues.School prayer has become a divisive and political issue, according to Briscoe. With the possibility that the Legislature may be asked to fund some of the legal costs of court action to make prayer at school graduations an option, the issue may dominate Utah politics this election year.
The Utah Policy Forum is sponsored by the Institute of Political Economy at Utah State University. Each month a forum is held to discuss a critical issue facing Utah or the nation.
The forum is open to the public. For more information, contact the Institute of Political Economy in Logan at 750-2064.
