Religion in schools in Northeast Tennessee

According to this report in the Kingsport Times (registration required), a lawyer from the Tennessee Department of Education "says she wants to dispel the myth that there can be no mixing of church and state in schools." The article notes that "According to state code 49-6-2904, a student has the right to pray in public school vocally or silently, express religious viewpoints, speak to and attempt to share religious viewpoints with other students in school, and possess or distribute religious literature in public school subject to reasonable time, place and manner restrictions."
