Journal of Texas School Women Executives, Volume II, Issue 1 2013 Right in American politics and evidence of some government support of voluntary prayer in public schools highlights the pro-prayer side of the debate. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush attempted to restore voluntary prayer to the nation’s schools. However, the most fundamental issue in the school prayer debate is the idea of governmentimposed religion. When all of the emotion on both sides is removed, fundamentally neither side supports a national religion. It is important to remember that the United States exists today because the founders sought to live in a country free from government interference, especially concerning religion.
