" The schools defended their practices by pointing out that the readings were not designed to promote any particular religion (various versions of the Bible were utilized) and that students were not compelled to participate in the exercises and could even leave the room if they wished, and by arguing that to elimi­ nate the readings would violate the right of free exercise of religion of those who wished to hear them.
