Fayette High School continues to hold prayer sessions despite a legal complaint that claims the sessions are unconstitutional.
Fayette Superintendent Tamara Kimball says district administrators haven't considered ending the Friday morning sessions since the American Humanist Association filed a complaint in November. She says the district doesn't believe it has done anything wrong by allowing the Fellowship of Christian Students to conduct the sessions.
The American Humanist Association filed a federal lawsuit against Missouri's Fayette School District on Wednesday (Nov. 20), saying Fayette High School is unconstitutionally promoting Christianity through teacher-led prayer.
The lawsuit focuses on the activities happening in the classroom of Gwen Pope, a math teacher at the school. Pope was the faculty advisor for the Christian student group at the school.
