Including Schools

Including Schools
Our first amendment of the United States
assures us that there will be separation of church and state.

An excerpt--the hand-written copy of the proposed Bill of Rights, 1789,  

[By 1st United States Congress - This media is available in the holdings of the National Archives and Records Administration, cataloged under the ARC Identifier (National Archives Identifier) 1408042.]

"I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."
--Thomas Jefferson
