This Note will trace the Supreme Court's treatment of prayer in the public schools. It will then explore the parameters laid out in Jaffree and demonstrate that the Supreme Court has relaxed its rigid attitude towards prayer in the public schools. Finally, the Note will apply the Jaffree parameters to North Carolina's new "Moment of Silence" statute.
