The government should have a role in the promotion of religious values in the nation's schools, but not in the way that is normally discussed--by passing laws that allow prayer or a "moment of silent meditation" in the public schools. Instead, the government should concentrate on policies that provide financial aid for schools with legitimate religious-education missions.
